PADDLEBOARD TECHNIQUES & TOUR
2.5 HOUR GUIDED TOUR | 2.5 MILES | BEGINNER - INTERMEDIATE PADDLING ACTIVITY
Experience the Ultimate Balance of Body and Mind on our Paddleboard Techniques and Tour. Perfect for both novices and experienced paddleboarders, you’ll receive personalized lessons to help you master the sport of paddle boarding while surrounded by the stunning beauty of the incredible Florida Springs. With a knowledgeable tour guide, you’ll explore the native wildlife and the diverse ecosystem of this unique area.
The adventure skips the tiring paddle up the Emerald Cut by taking a leisurely golf cart ride through King’s Landing, viewing the other areas of the park, arriving to the private launch at the top of the run. Before embarking on the water, our knowledgeable instructors will show you proper paddling techniques, and customize the tour to your skill level. Learn everything from proper stance & body rotations to board turns & overboard maneuvers.
Your paddle journey will start with a leisurely float through our most scenic areas, as well as our Wild Florida area with much more wildlife! There will be opportunities to swim along the way as your guide stops to show you their favorite spots on the river. Once you reach the turn around point, you will take a short paddle back to King's Landing.
There’s no better way to explore the Emerald Cut than from the water on a paddleboard! The higher vantage point allows for you to spot more wildlife such as otters, turtles, alligators, and birds along the way. Don't miss out on a truly unforgettable adventure - reserve your spot today!
Please note that during our rainy season in August & September it is common for the water level to rise in the Emerald Cut. This causes the clearer blue waters to become a tannic red until you reach the top of the run. This process takes place over time as water produced by rainfall slowly moves through the surrounding area in Wekiwa State Park and into Rock Springs Run. As the water flows over fallen leaves, the tannin slowly leaches out and turns the water brown tea-colored.
