Make your own way to the departure point prior to 9 a.m. Remember to bring USD3.00 for a State Park parking fee, payable when you check-in for your tour. Then, meet your guide to sign a waiver and review safety procedures and kayaking basics before hitting the water.
As you paddle down the Wekiva River, your guide will help you spot native wildlife like alligators and wading birds in their natural habitat, as well as other key points of interest in the local ecosystem. The wildlife on the protected Wekiva River is typically abundant, earning it the status of a National Wild and Scenic River.

My wife and I paddled the Wekiva River while we were in Orlando visiting our son. It was a very cold March morning but after we met our guide, Matt, he assured us that the water was warm, the sun would shine and there was no reason to not go. We made the right decision. Our eight mile, four hour paddle was over too quickly. Along the river we saw lots of wild life while being expertly informed by our guide. If you are not Parks People and are looking for a great experience, I would recommend this alternative activity - a Florida river paddle on the wild and very scenic Wekiva River.

This was both mine and my boyfriends favourite thing we did in Orlando! The views alone were incredible, and our guide was so much fun and so knowledgeable. It really was the perfect day!
