At $22/kayak and put-in and take-out, we rented four kayaks for a two-hour float down the river, which flows into the Santa Fe River, which flows into the Suwannee River. The water was clear with fish jumping frequently. Largemouth bass, mullet and 29 other species of fish live here. We had great viewings of Manatee, and we were surprised how big they are. One had two babies with her. It is a beautiful float, but on a Sunday, there were a lot of kayaks on the river, which wasn’t really a problem. Toward the last third of the trip, lots of tubers entered the river at a dock, and that’s a different crowd. All-in-all a worthwhile trip, but try to go on a week day.
