From the frozen North to the Florida sun December 3, 2013










Florida sunshine was the theme of the day. We all felt like Turtles basking in the sun. Little Blue Herons young and old, Great Blues, Great Egrets, Cormorants, Anhingas, Snowy and Cattle Egrets all came by as we paddled the St Johns River. A pair of Bald Eagles awaited us at the springs and we saw quite a few Manatees coming and going. Back in the swamps we found a Wood Stork sunning and finished off the day with a good sized Mother Gator watching over her youngens ;-). Life is good!

Great, great, great time. Better than I expected. I was terrified to do go in the water with gators but as Kenny said, they were not even an issue. I suggest this trip to Blue Springs to anyone afraid or not. Thanks to everyone who went and to our terrific guide Kenny. Will do this again.

Thank you so much! It was an awesome trip.

I gave my aunt the brochure and wouldn't be surprised if she called to book a time!

All the best.

We Loved it!! Kenny was very informative and humorous. We got some great pictures of the manatees and eagles along with a gator and her babies.
No one is a stranger here, and we met some very awesome people. It was very relaxing and serene.
I will be back and definitely kayak Rock Springs Run next time.
Thank you Jennifer and Kenny for the wonderful experience.
