Near Orlando there are numerous places to kayak & Central Florida Nature Adventures, llc 352-589-7899 is here to show you the way. These fresh water rivers are great eco retreats for those who would like to see Florida's natural side & a guided kayak tour is a great way to safely experience nature up close.
Centrally located to Daytona Beach, Orlando and Ocala is the Silver River. With it's headwaters being the second largest spring in Florida, it's an absolute treasure. Today we had the privilege of paddling with the Minnesotans. We got to visit with Male and Female Anhingas, Little Blue Herons both in their 1st year white phase and in their adult blue phase. The Black Crowned Night Herons were stalking in the Duckweed for food, the White Ibis were rooting around on the banks and resting in the trees overhead. The Wood Ducks, Pileated Woodpeckers, Moorhens and Great Blue Herons also came out as if to say "welcome to our river". There are lots of fresh Apple Snail Eggs now and the Red-bellied and River Cooter Turtles were sunning on the logs in abundance. We got to see a few Alligators and they tried their hand at some stealthy Gator Photography... as seen here at Minnesota Gator Adventurers ...We got to see a Monkey along the way and that little bit of rain we had? It just made for a great paddle.
George and Mary shared these photos with us. Thanks You Two!
