weekend on the water at High Springs

We met with the kayak explorers group at High Springs, Florida and paddled the Santa Fe River and Ichetucknee River/Springs this weekend.

Gorgeous area---more to come!

on the Ichetucknee...

The Ichetucknee River is a spring fed, pristine river in north central Florida. Thousands of people visit the river and springs each year. Activities include tubing, hiking, wildlife viewing, picnicking, swimming, canoeing, snorkeling and scuba cave diving. The whole 6 miles of the river average 20 feet wide, 8 feet deep and lie within the boundaries of Ichetucknee Springs State Park.

The most popular past-time on the Ichetucknee River is tubing. There are several tube renting companies located just outside the Ichetucknee Springs State Park entrance and visitors can rent large tubes and rafts for anywhere from $5 to $20 per flotation device. Tubing here is very popular among college students at the University of Florida in Gainesville since it is just a short one hour drive to the river.
