Named for its crystal clear waters, the Emerald Cut section of Rock Springs Run winds through sections of lush jungle-like nature, breathtaking emerald water and sandy bottom beneath your paddle as you explore this tropical oasis in in the middle of Central Florida. Rock Springs Run is one of two designated Wild and Scenic Rivers in the state of Florida, part of the complex ecological system of the Wekiva River Basin.  The first half of the tour we begin paddling upstream against the current, paddling over and under trees and through the twists and turns of the river until we reach the bridge at Kelly Park. The second half of the tour, we will sit back and go with the flow as the current takes us back to the launch point.


Along our journey on the Emerald Cut section of Rock Springs Run, it's possible to see many different wildlife species to include alligators, turtles, river otters, white-tailed deer, fish, black bears, and an array of birds such as great egrets, herons, and bald eagles.


Please note, each party will be setup with either a double or single kayak depending on the size of the party and availability.  Children 12 and under must be in a double kayak with an adult.
