Cold Spring Eco Tour
Journey to Cypress Springs on this 7-hour water adventure tour, and see one of Florida’s lesser-known beautiful springs. Cruise down Holmes Creek in a canoe or kayak to make your way to Cypress Springs. Once there, spend about five hours snorkeling or swimming, and enjoy a sandwich lunch when hunger strikes.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the Publix Super Market on Panama City Beach Parkway across from Carillon Beach before 8am. Around 8am, board a canoe or a kayak — it’s your choice — and listen to instructions from your guide.

Paddle down Holmes Creek, taking in sights of the beautiful surrounding area. Make your way to Cypress Springs, where the real adventure begins.

You'll have about five hours to snorkel or swim. The tour provides you with all the snorkeling equipment you need, and the water in the springs stays at a cool 70 degrees all year round. After you suit up in your snorkeling gear, be on the lookout for different kinds of fish. You can also use an underwater scooter if you like, which does most of the work for you, so you can really enjoy the views.

During your trip, take a break for a sandwich lunch. Make sure to note your sandwich preference at the time of booking, so your guide can have your perfect sandwich ready for you when you start to get hungry.

Great Day away from the beach
