The guided glass bottom boat tour was phenomenal. What a learning experience for young and old alike. The boat captains were knowledgeable and quick to answer questions. Great deal.
I kayak on this river at least once or twice a month. Very peaceful and relaxing (more so going down stream).Now since Silver Springs Attraction has been taken over by the state and is now a State Park, you can rent kayaks or canoes right at the Park. The springs are beautiful. Loaded with wildlife such as monkeys (please don't... More
This park is now operated by the NPS. It is in dire need of a huge revamp. The tour guide that we had was absolutely horrible, you could not understand a word that he said. I complained to the ranger. The cost was a total of $13.00 and was not worth a quarter. The concession stand had horrible food! Don't... More

($4 to use the boat ramp) canoe/kayak rentals $20-$24 to paddle a 1.6 loop to the springs. If you decide to go up the river (rentals not... More

Almost everything was closed down except the Ice cream parlor and the glass bottom boat ride. We took the opportunity to ride the glass bottom boat and it was... More
The old classic glass bottom boat ride was a lot of fun. Our guide was very informative and funny as he described each spring, the history of the area, and the wildlife. We walked around some of the park walkways. The entire park is being remodeled, so there isn't much else to do after getting a souvenir or snack, but... More
we launched a pontoon boat downriver and slowly rode up to the springs at Silver Springs Park. The water is so clear and cool--72 degrees year-round, so refreshing in the summertime. You see many alligators, turtles, fish, birds, otters, and frequently will see monkeys along the banks in the trees.
