Springs Outing: Weeki Wachee Paddle – SOLD OUT
December 15, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$30.00 – $45.00
Join the Florida Springs Institute for a Springs Outing to the Weeki Wachee with tour guide, Lars Anderson of Adventure Outpost. The goal of Florida Springs Institute Springs Outings are to provide nature lovers the chance to learn about these beautiful, yet fragile ecosystems from qualified experts and scientists so that we may continue vital research and education efforts for the conservation of Florida springs and fresh waterways. Each Springs Outing holds a new adventure, new facts, information, and experiences.
The Weeki Wachee is one of the most beautiful spring runs in Florida, easily ranking with Ichetucknee and Silver Rivers. It’s also one of the most diverse. In addition to this beautiful setting for wild manatees, bird lovers will also enjoy this trip with pelicans, wood storks, wood ducks, and many other water birds, especially near the head spring. Otters are also common!
Medium: The channel gets narrow and winding in places. This can be challenging for inexperienced paddlers. Because of this, we don’t recommend this trip for beginners. It is a better fit for intermediate and advanced paddlers.
There is no shuttle pricing for this outing. You can bring your own boat and use Adventure Outpost shuttle bus, however, if you choose this option you will be required to pay full price ($45.00) as though you were renting a boat as well.
