'Strange and Mysterious Waters' is prominently displayed on the state park brochure and it hardly begins to scratch the surface, or should I say what you’d find below the surface of Wakulla Springs. Amazing wildlife, springs, swamps, caves and more!

If we get all of our week's objectives done, we reward ourself with a kayak trip(s). /quote]

My weekly objective is to kayak at least 3 times a week. Nice report, always good to know where the shoe eating muck is.

An important part of the trip report for me was..... the paddle back upstream wasn't strenuous. I do paddle upstream on some rivers and streams - Holmes Creek isn't difficult to do, but am always concerned about going downstream first, and paddling back up. Thanks for the input from another woman paddler and thanks for posting. Always nice to read a fresh voice.

Hi beachtonia. Looks like a great day on the Wakulla. Thanks for contributing the trip report and photos!

My daughter and I hit the ramp on 61 just outside the park boundaries today and paddled about 3 miles down the river and back and fell in love. This was absolutely beautiful! The turtles, plant life, fish and birds were amazing, but the Manatee was definitely the highlight of the day! I can't recommend this trip enough. . .especially for beginners like ourselves. The current is minimal at best and the trip back upstream was as far from strenuous as you can get. We'll be back REAL soon!

While you can't paddle the upper two miles of river that is in the state park, paddling from US 98 up to the park boundary and back makes an awesome 7 mile trip. Need more distance? Start from San Marcos de Apalache Historical site in St. Marks to add another 6 miles (round trip).
