Penguin Paddling Mount Dora wants to introduce visitors to the calming waters and woodsy surroundings in each of its locales in Virginia and Florida. Tours along Virginia's Occoquan River loop past historical buildings and alongside wildlife including eagles, ospreys, and beavers, while a nature paddle on Neabsco Creek outside of Washington, D.C. yields up-close glimpses of great blue herons and turtles. Meanwhile, in Florida, a guide that doubles as a master naturist narrates breathtaking jaunts on Lake Dora. Of course, Penguin Paddling understands that some kayakers prefer to explore on their own, which is why the company also offers kayaks that are available for rent at an hourly rate.

Florida from a Kayak's experienced staff helps launch paddlers from the Jones Cypress Cove Marina shore on aquatic expeditions through Lake Minnehaha and the seven surrounding bodies of water of the Clermont Chain of lakes. Seasoned staff members stand by to offer counsel on appropriate safety measures and warnings against fraternizing with fishhooks as customers prepare to mount their watery steeds. They also help single or tandem kayak pairs tour the natural wildlife and scenery of the enchanting sequence of lakes and channels.
Florida from a Kayak's eco tours showcase the rugged beauty of the Lake County Blueways, inviting guests to dip oars into the glowing, moonlit waters during the Bioluminescent Night tour, or glide past the snaking roots and low-hanging terraces during the Mangrove Meandering tour. Instructors teach pupils to spiff up their paddling know-how in lessons, or customers can opt to cast off in a rented kayak or pontoon boat for leisurely, unguided meanderings along the teeming wilderness.

Surrounded by 9,000 acres of conservation land, the Wekiva Falls RV Resort campground immerses visitors in nature while providing access to water-recreation areas and modern creature comforts. Sites for RVs and tents can give owners views of the river, while picnic tables can be kept primitive to facilitate a rough wilderness experience or get decked out with electric and water hookups. The campground also rents canoes and kayaks so visitors can paddle up and down the adjacent Wekiva River taking in the lush shoreline scenery. In a separate swimming area fed by a large sulfur spring, guests splash around a 40-foot waterfall or plunge down dual tube slides, and they can also lounge in a heated outdoor pool in the event of cooler temperatures. Alternative forms of entertainment are also available including a bar that serves beer and wine, crafts sessions, themed parties and dinners, and day trips to local golf courses.
