These are the clearest, most stable glass-bottom kayaks you'll find on the Silver River! What makes these kayaks clearer and better than competitors' is the dedication we put into their daily maintenance and care. Our efforts are unmatched! Our glass bottom kayaks come with a sit-in-top design, which means it is well suited to all-weather paddling. The cockpit sits lower into the boat, so stability is greatly increased, paddler comfort is enhanced, and wave impact is reduced. Our kayaks come standard with a transparent hull for underwater viewing. We offer both Solo and Tandem kayaks with strict weight capacity guidelines to ensure a safe and stable ride. A tour guide, a padded seat, a floating paddle, dry storage and a PFD for each paddler are included with your booking.
Currently offering guided tours on the Silver River, launching from Silver Springs State Park!

These waterways are known to hold an abundance of wildlife such as alligators, manatees, otters, turtles, fish, birds, deer, panthers, bears, snakes and Rhesus monkeys. There have been several movies filmed at Silver Springs over the years and you can still see remnants left behind from films such as Sea Hunt, Tarzan & 007 to this day! The Silver River offers an experience you won't find anywhere else!
