Had a beautiful day down in Florida, my younger brother, Jay' and I decided to go for a paddle on the Weeki Wachee river. A natural spring flowing towards the Gulf.. Super clear water and full of life. Seen one Manatee that startled us surfacing from a deep section of the spring. . Its a real neat place to Paddle and experience one of Florida's untouched settings.
Weeki Wachee is about 1 hour N. of Tampa and 2 hours west of Orlando.Not only do they have theme park attraction but the state park and Weeki Wachee 8-9 mile river to the Gulf is worth seeing.
There are several sight seeing tours and kayaking available but best on a SUP..
...google and check out the area.
