Must do day trips.

If you can fit one of these into your itinerary you MUST. The Florida aquifer pumps out millions of gallons of crystal clear, constantly 72°, beautiful spring water for us to enjoy. Whether you rent a pontoon or an inner tube, you're going to have an amazing experience. ** Local tip-A hybrid stand up/kayak vessel is my favorite way to float the river. When launching at KP Hole park, GO UPSTREAM! Most people head down and they miss out on the beautiful headsprings! it's an easy paddle and will add about an hour to your trip (30 up and 30 back to the launch point *not the exit*).

Home of the world-famous Weeki Wachee Mermaids and Florida's only spring-fed waterpark "Buccaneer Bay" this state park is one of a kind. The park does reach capacity very early on weekends so a weekday trip is better if possible. If you must go on a weekend, plan to get there super early. Call a couple days prior for advice on a suggested arrival time.

If you want to experience Florida's premier crystal clear 72° freshwater spring but don't want to kayak or paddle board, launch a rental tube at KP Hole! They will pick you up at the end of the river. As with most things, parking capacity fills up quickly so our advice is to get there early. Please visit their website for info on what is allowed on the river. (No single use plastics for instance). *If your budget allows for a paddle board /hybrid kayak rental, do it. Being above the water is a far superior experience. You don't have to stand the whole time on a SUP and balancing is super easy.
