Florida Guided Paddle Trips

Visiting? Try These Guided Paddle Tours!

Florida is the home of many majestic and scenic rivers. Your trip to Florida should not be complete without enjoying at least one paddle trip.   Some companies excel at getting you on the water and paddling these beautiful spots. One of our favorites is  Adventure Outpost located in High Springs Florida just outside of Gainesville.  This area is the Springs Heartland of Florida and home to some of Florida’s most loved spring fed rivers.   But Adventure Outpost doesn’t limit its tours just to North Florida Rivers,  Adventure Outpost schedules guided trips on over 40 rivers in Florida.

 

If you’ve been dying to see a manatee, some of the winter trips Adventure Outpost has planned will leave the guesswork out of your dream.  Florida springs in the winter are regularly inundated with scores of Manatees, and AO will find the right spring to paddle  where you will definitely have encounters.

Hanker a romantic moonlight trip? Every full moon Adventure Outpost plans at least one night trip to enjoy spectacular paddling on the Santa Fe by moonlight.

History Paddle Tours let you explore the history and prehistory of some of North Florida’s most scenic and remote rivers.  These tours, and many of the trips by Adventure Outpost are Led by Lars Anderson a local history writer,  naturalist, and experienced paddle guide.
