We did a kayak tour Saturday at 9am with Shane as our guide and we loved it. It was our first time using kayaks and Shane made it very easy for my wife and I. We each paddled our own canoe. The tour was 2 and a half hours but the time flew by. We paddled through the springs and river observing the wildlife and plants, which Shane pointed out and explained all the way. We even got to see a manatee and her calf in the springs and a couple of gators in the water in the river (from far of course). You can tell Shane really likes his job and is very knowledgeable and accommodating during the tour. This is definitely a must do at Blue Spring!

Our guide, Rebecca, was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide and kept us informed about all of the animal and plant life. We saw a manatee, alligators, turtles, and pink snail eggs! It was only an hour but we saw so much and learned so much from our guide. I love that the boat was so quiet and peaceful. Thank you for a great trip.

In a one hour boat ride by this section of the Saint Johns River ( the largest in Florida) we enjoyed the lush nature and wildlife. The ride is quiet and relaxed and our guide funny and knowledgeable. I recommend this tour if you are in Blue Springs State Park.
