Nature is a wonderous thing!

20 MPH winds from the north couldn’t stop our paddling adventure today on the mighty St Johns. The river with all its twists, turns and backwaters made for some calm areas in which to explore. With the warm sun shining down on us we headed off to find the wildlife which was also trying to escape the winds of the day. Great Blue Herons are nesting and decked out in their breeding plums. The Great Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Green Herons and Snowy Egrets are all looking sharp this spring and we must have seen 100 White Ibis. The Turtles were out sunning today and the Ospreys were flying overhead. After a little break we headed downstream and were greeted by a Manatee. She was decorated with Duck Weed as she came up for a breath. We got to watch her surface several times as we headed to our get out spot. It was a beautiful day to spend with Mother Nature! 

Kayaking with the Manatees, what a sight this is! January 14, 2016

With the cold nights down into the low 40’s the Manatees were everywhere around Blue Springs and the back waters of the St Johns River today. The friendly creatures are quite curious and came right over to our kayaks to say hello. It’s almost like they were trying to communicate with us. We saw just about every inland water bird there is… from Great Blue to Little Blue Herons to Purple Gallinules and breeding male Anhingas with their green eyes. Green and Tri-colored Herons, White Ibis, Glossy Ibis, Black Crowned Night Herons, Bald Eagle, Red-shouldered Hawk and more. It was a true birding hot bed and a lovely day spent with some lovely people!

Jeff Hodgson's Guided Kayak Tour November 18, 2015

"Hi Jenny,
Thought I'd sent a quick note and some pics from our wonderful trip with Kenny on Nov 18th.
It was a wonderful trip with lot's of wildlife sightings and some quintessential Florida nature. 
My wife and mother-in-law were not sure what to expect, but the trip turned into a highlight
of our Florida vacation. We saw some rare birds, turtles, manatees, alligators. We got caught 
in a passing rainstorm which only added to the adventure.
Hopefully we'll return to Florida someday and sign up for another river adventure. 
Thanks so much!

Kayaking the Central Florida Springs

With a family of four in the tandems we set out to see the wildlife of the St Johns River. The river is at it's seasonal high so we had lots of backwaters to explore. As we approached the spring run the water turned crystal clear and we found ourselves paddling with the fish. There were Longnose Gar, Tilapia, Bream, Bass and several others swimming right under our kayaks. The Kingfishers that are migrating down for the Winter were gathering in the run too. Paddling through Snake Creek we heard a Barred Owl and found him snoozing in the tree canopy... cool stuff. Drifting down the river with a cool breeze blowing and the sun on our shoulders made for a true nirvana moment!
