Although "kayak" is spelled the same way forwards and backwards, palindromic paddling simply spins crafts in circles.

Choose one of two excursions:

Reservations are required one week in advance.
Discovery Kayak Tours is a full-service guide and kayak tour company offering outings that explore nature and wildlife in the heart of Florida. After driving to the launch location, adventurers get an instructional overview, one of Discovery’s single-passenger kayaks, and a life jacket. Available dry-bags keep accessories arid while you venture on a three- to four-hour watery excursion. The tours grant an inside look at the pristine, pool-like waters of springs where West Indian manatees are known to retire for the winter to sun, swim, and file their taxes. Ogle bathing beauties such as water fowl, fish, alligators, turtles, and even monkeys on the Silver River tour, or marvel at caves and springs on the Rainbow River tour. Naturalist guides will explain the history of the region and what makes each locale unique, and allow for a picnic stop along the way to snack and rest hardworking oars.
Two days before your scheduled tour, you will receive an email with instructions on where to meet, what to wear, and what to bring.
