Santa Fe Canoe Outpost’s accommodating staff rents out canoes and kayaks to aspiring water-riders so they may embark on picturesque day trips along the banks of the Santa Fe River. Up to three rowers can launch their borrowed vessels through tranquil waters while on 7-mile jaunts, feasting their eyes on crystalline springs, lush greenery, and otters auditioning for synchronized swimming teams. The longer, 15-mile excursion beefs up paddlers’ forearms while granting them an extended opportunity to take in views of local flora and an abundance of wildlife. Santa Fe Canoe Outpost equips all riders with life jackets, paddles, and transportation to the launch point.
Santa Fe Canoe Outpost
With an inventory of canoes and kayaks—as well as a choice launch point on the banks of the Santa Fe River—Santa Fe Canoe Outpost is a starting point for a wide range of aquatic day trips. There are adventures of varying length, from the 7-mile down-river trip to Rum Island to multi-day canoe camping trips to the furthest destination, 39 miles away. Gliding down the river, paddlers may spy some of Florida's famous springs, including the Poe, Devil's Eye, or Lilly, or can peer back at nocturnal wildlife on one of the monthly Full Moon trips. At the conclusion of each outing, a Canoe Outpost team member arrives to safely transport both guests and vessels back to home base.
