Full service rentals for canoes. Friendly helpful staff. Waters are pristine and lots of wildlife to see. Bass Fishing on this part of the river is good too.

For a small fee you can launch your own watercraft or rent a canoe or kayak. It cost $40 ($30 for all day kayak rental plus $10 for the shuttle back to my car). I rented a yellow kayak with a molded seat that had three different levels of places for my feet to rest. It was incredibly comfortable and... More

We launched our own kayaks at $10 each. A bit steep, in my opinion, but worth it once to see the beauty of Florida's nature. If you want to paddle the entire run, plan on paying their fee for pick up and be there early, from what I hear. We chose to paddle about halfway and return on our own.... More

This is one of the nicest places I've been to for canoeing. Very shaded river, slow flowing current, lots of nature.You have 2 options: we took the 1/2 day going downstream about 2 miles and then rowing back upstream, which actually took us about 2 hours. Then you can hang out and swim, picnic, etc. Other option is to go... More

We really enjoyed our trip down the Wekiwa River. The river goes from crystal clear to tanic color. You do need to paddle back against a swift current. We did a round trip of about 8 miles. We saw several gators and HUGE bandanna spiders. We were very surprised that we only saw two birds. There are a lot of... More

My husband and I took our three grandsons, ages 16, 7, and 4 and spent about three hours in well maintained and very clean canoes exploring the Wekiva. Then we spent another hour and a half swimming in the Springs. We loved it and hope to do it again when we get the opportunity! From our two canoes we saw... More

Great time and scenery. Fishing was fun did catch and release, no work at all. Recommend bug spray. Wild life easy to see- alligators, turtles, birds fish. Men who work there very nice, well worth the cost.

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We got the double kayak and went off for a splendid adventure which began at the swimming hole then off to the rock springs. The down to Wekiwa springs park. Watch out for alligators saw a giant snapping turtle. Loved this run.

My husband and I went to Kings Landing this past Saturday, Memorial weekend. We had a great time. We launched our own kayaks but arranged to be picked up at the end. Best decision, ever. The Owner was extremely friendly and the guy at the dock picking up rental canoes was super helpful. We didn't pick a set time to... More

Kings Landing canoe rental service was awesome. For a reasonable price they provide everything that you need to include vests, canoe, paddles, and fishing nets. They even pick you up with a bus afterwards. I took my 3 year old and we had a blast. It's a very long route about 8.5 miles but there are plenty of shady spots... More
