This 2.5-3 hour guided tour takes you along the crystalline waterways of the Rainbow River on our 100% clear paddle boards! While paddling, we may encounter some of the local wildlife: birds, fish, otters, and more! During our paddle we will have the ability to hop out and enjoy the water a bit! Our all clear paddle boards offer a unique experience when viewing the wildlife beneath you!
We begin the paddle at the KP Hole Park and paddle north until we reach the Gissy Springs Creek. This shallow creek is a great spot to hop off and enjoy the water a bit. After stopping at Gissy Springs Creek, we will continue heading upstream towards the Rainbow Springs Headsprings. During this part of the paddle we have the potential to see a wide variety of wildlife and pass numerous springs on our way to the top of the river. After reaching the Rainbow Springs headsprings, we will start the paddle back downstream.
* DISCLAIMER *
THIS IS AN INTERMEDIATE LEVEL PADDLE!
The Rainbow Springs paddle is only for those who have experience with paddle boarding. We paddle upstream for roughly 45 mins to get to the headspring. This tour is not suited for beginners! We recommend this paddle for those ages 15 and older. Children are able to ride as passengers as long as the combined weight is under the load capacity for the paddle boards (250lbs).
