DAY PADDLE | Self Guided Paddle

The Day Paddle is a self guided paddle out, paddle back to our launch at King's Landing.  Once you exit our canal, you will be able to explore one mile either direction discovering the raw beauty of Rock Springs Run.  Bring your own vessel or rent one of ours to paddle this unexpected oasis in the heart of Central Florida.

Discover the breathtaking Emerald Cut section of Rock Springs Run on this paddle option.  Known for its crystal clear emerald water and jungle-like surroundings, you will be quickly swept away to paradise.  Once you exit our canal, you will take a right, paddling upstream against the current until you reach the bridge at Kelly Park.  Once you have reached the bridge, you will not be able to paddle any further and you will turn around to slowly drift back downstream on this natural lazy river.

Explore wild Florida and escape in lush tropical hammocks and wildlife around every paddle.  Once you exit our canal, you will take a left, paddling downstream with the current until you reach the two signs that read, Turn Around.  Once you see these signs, you will turn around and paddle back upstream back to our launch.  Along your journey you can see, alligators, turtles, fish, deer, black bears and many different bird species.
