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.

Right Side.

Discover the breathtaking Emerald Cut section of Rock Springs Run.  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 barricade at Kelly Park.  You will then turn around and drift back downstream, enjoying the beautiful natural lazy river of Rock Springs Run.

Left Side.

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 two buoy's that read, Turn Around.  You will then turn around and paddle back upstream to our launch area.  Along your journey you may see alligators, turtles, fish, deer, black bears and many bird species that call Rock Springs Run home.
