Florida Kayaking Weeki Wachee Springs River. Come with me as I explore a 6 mile paddle from the source of the Weeki Wachee spring down to my takeout point at Rogers Landing. 72° Crystal clear water awaits you on this epic spring fed float, one of the most popular Springs in all of Florida! Come check it out!
I really want to go. But I’m afraid of seeing any alligators.
Weeki Wachee is no longer a privately owned attraction….but a public lands Florida State Park. They outsourced the canoe/ kayak launch and rental operation to Boating in Florida. Horrible…. so much that homeowners complaints now limit the # of kayakers allowed per day. You will NEVER get a reservation with your own kayak. This is because when you call they are always full…even if they are not. Nobody else can use " their" launch. Have your customer call 5 minutes later and say you have 5 people to rent kayaks…sure come on in! Dont expect the employees at Boating in Florida to be nice to your tour family…. in fact expect something like…" you could of saved yourself alot of $ and skipped this guy and just rented kayaks from us directly " or if your guest asks them a simple question…. are there any alligators? Why dont you ask your guide…. help you carry the other end of the kayak….nope. Your problem…not mine. My advice
Skip these clowns and the floating drunk fest progression of low class trashy people. Linda Penderson Park…. google it…. has a super nice county park with free parkimg, picnic shelters, playground for kids and a proper kayak launch….not a mudhole 9n the bank. Free…. no rude employees…. and actually a nicet paddle along coast to Bayport then into the Weekee Wachee from the other end. I have done the Weeki both ways. Short of it…. you will have a more peaceful paddle and probably see more manatees ….. take your time and pull out at Upper Deck restaurant or park across from it….. cab ride is 5 bucks and 5 minutes back to Linda Penderson Park to grab your vehicle and kayak trailer. The Weeki is a beautiful destination…. but the state park vendor is horrible, everyone has complaints. I heard Florida State Parks may put the Weeki Wachee canoe/ kayak contract out for bids to find a replacement. Till this happens Kayak Shack next to Upper Deck is better operation to rent kayak from. BEWARE THE $50.00 scam! You have exactly 4 hours and the float from headspring to poorly marked pullout will take 4 hours….. if your 1 minute late at pullout…. they bang your credit card ( just held for security) for $50.00 and you can not debate the charge. Last tip….. if you still decide to use the state park vendor…bring your own pfd. Theirs have the sweat n body funk from the last 20 people….same cheap wholesale pak of orange cheapos from China.
Any gators there?
awesome looking place. Do they allow fishing?
Also yu said no motors. Does that include electric trolling motors? I am disabled and use a trolling motor on my kayak to allow me to kayak.
Had a blast!!! I brought a garbage bag and gathered some trash I found along the river too! Good idea
thanks to youtube and the internet , this river has turned into another ride at Disney World.
When I started kayaking here in 1992 I was the only Kayak on the whole river. Now it is a nightmare with hundreds of Kayaks coming down everyday. Less humans and more Manatees Please !!!!

Well made video, lots of good info
Was there alligators
Awesome presentation! I live near Weeki Wachee and go there often, each time it feels like heaven and i am so happy there!
Thank you for this informative video. I appreciate how you care about the environment. I will clean up when i go out as well. I am a northerner and am also worried about gators but i love to kayak. Thank you for this information.
why are people swimming in there with alligators?!?!
Where do you park and when you reach to Rogers do you kayak all the way back?
I really enjoyed your video. I especially appreciated the initiative to clean up when you see the need. Beautiful idea.
Is it ok for me to bring my doggie on this one?
Ill be going there this weekend with my family for my first kayak trip. Im excited
What a Stunning place-looks amazing
Great video. Subbed. What editing software are you using?
good video keep it up
Litter is the scourge of our civilization. I wish people were more concerned and show respect for our environment.
What a great video!!
I’m from Florida and I love going to that place
I once owned a small home right on the river back in the late 80s, bought the two bedroom home for $32k, sold it in 96 for $42k. Can’t image how much it’s worth now. Miss that place
What about the alligators? Am I missing something?
Great video. I’m from south Florida and love the rivers there. The wildlife is unbelievable.
The contracted vendor who does all the kayak/canoe rentals at Weeki Wachee State Park has very rude employees, if you are not renting from them and bring your own ….well you will see.
I live in spring hill 5min away from weeki wachee and in 2018 i have been kayaking 18 times in 2 days is my 19th i like to keep log
I’m going there tomorrow!!

Did you see any manatees during the time your visit? I plan to go on early Mar next year and hope I will have a chance to see a manatee there.
Hey Cliff, thank you for your videos ! 🙏 My family and I enjoy them and look forward to more of your adventures which inspires us to get out there 🛶
Pick n Paddle, I like that. Will def get a sticker or a few.
I did enjoy your video clip and some historic input for non locals to understand the beauty of the place. Great Job
I am trying to signup for Kyakcliff, and get a sticker but the website is down
I completely missed the fact that you have to make a reservation. Fortunately it wasn’t busy so I made a call and get in. And saw a manatee! Which was cool
Love your concern for the environment!!!
