Clear kayak tour through Rock Springs

Apopka, United States

Experience hosted by Justin

2.5 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We'll get you checked in right when you arrive to allow for the most possible time on the water! Once you're all checked in, we'll give some basic paddle instructions and information about the tour ahead. We'll get you loaded up into your clear kayak and off we go! The paddle will last about 2 to 2.5 hours depending on the speed of our group and any wildlife we may see along the way. We will be sure to take plenty of pictures and give some awesome unique facts about the area on our several picturesque stopping points! There will even be a couple chances for you to get out and enjoy the refreshing Spring water! The first half of the paddle will be upstream towards the headspring of Rock Springs (a slight workout, but don't worry we take breaks) and the second half will be a gentle coast back to our launch point. Be ready for lots of great local nature and wildlife along the way!
Other things to note
The $10 per boat launch fee is included in the price. AirBnB does not collect taxes but we owe taxes so that has been included in the price as well! Check out our website for additional times.

I believe that the best way to experience nature is in a completely clear kayak which is why I founded Get Up And Go Kayaking! I am proud to host the top experience near Orlando! Clear kayaking allows you to have an immersive perspective on the unique wildlife and nature we have here in Florida - I like to think of it as having the best window seat to the 'real' Central Florida!

If you're not paddling with myself, you'll be guided by Ashley, Daniel, or Jacob - all well-traveled local Orlando lovers with backgrounds in adventuring and hosting!

Where you'll be

We will start the tour at King's Landing and paddle into a unique part of Rock Springs Run known as "Emerald Cut". This portion of the waterway is a beautiful greenish/blue tint with tree canopies overhead. There's a hidden jump platform that we allow guests to take a leap from if they choose. From there we'll paddle through the winding crystal blue waterway towards Kelly Park and eventually make our way back to our launch!

So honestly, everything was handled very well and everyone was super nice!! First, we had an issue with booking this experience through AirBnB, which was no fault of the company, but Justin took matters into his own hands and added a date and time that worked perfect for us! Then, the actual experience was great! We had Daniel as our guide, and he was super awesome. He gave us some great little stories/facts about the area and was just an overall enjoyable dude to be around, super pleasant! Overall wonderful time 😊

Our guide, Ashley, was awesome! She was very friendly, easy to talk to, and made the whole experience enjoyable. The water was warm and crystal clear. The plants were beautiful, and we even saw some turtles swimming underwater. Would definitely recommend!

Only rated 4 stars because of my personal experience of being a beginner at kayaking. It was quite challenging to go upstream (didn't even make it 1/2 way) but I feel it was due to lack of experience personally. Aside from not knowing how to kayak properly, the tour guide was amazing and forgiving. Didn't make anything a big deal or seem bothered by the fact that we (my bf & I) didn't know. He shared history of the canal and tried his best to have us continue the tour. Although we were unable to finish it, hindsight was 20/20 and we were able to laugh at our failure and definitely want to try it again 100% (more than likely after we lose our quarantine 15 haha). Worth it, definitely recommend, we just failed to be able to complete the tour. If you've kayaked before, definitely book and don't second guess . Even if you haven't it's a great experience. Go for it!
