We took the glass bottom boat tour and it was a delight to spot alligators on the edges or just floating in the water, to be able to see so far down and watch fish swimming in this beautiful park. We loved strolling through the park itself. The concessions are expensive and leave a lot to be desired.

A visit to this area of Florida is highly recommended if only for a day trip.
Beautiful views, lovely uncrowded beaches and wildlife galore.
If on a trip to Florida this is a place to escape to and to take in natures wonders--then back to the extravagance that Florida and America offers!!!

If you have never been on a spring fed river in Florida, great trip for wild life etc. I live near the river, and have use my boat, to cruise it, but I have no Idea if they offer guide tours of the river, except maybe through the Silver river state park or Silver springs Attraction

We went boating with friends who were very familiar with the river. It was a great place to sight see ( lots of nature), and plenty of places to tie off and picnic. It runs into the Silver Springs Park, so there was alot of history to see as well.

This is a great, inexpensive place to take the family for a day out. There is something for everyone, and you learn a lot, without realizing you're learning. Staff is always pleasant, and it's rather inexpensive. Concert days are a bit crowded, so get there early, and be sure to bring your own seating! The kids and I always have fun there. We love the festival of lights and their halloween activities. Great place to visit!
