January or Early Feb 2023:
Paddle Crystal River with the Manatees then Rainbow River after Lunch.
We will meet up at AWS at 7 am and "Shove/Drive" off at 7:30 am sharp. Head straight to Crystal River arriving around 9:30,10am(pay your parking fee). and paddle for aprox. 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
We should see PLENTY of Manatees! Then we head to Dunnellon for a quick lunch break and a short drive to Rainbow River (small entrance fee) and paddle one of the most beautiful waterways in Florida. It is a 1.5 mile paddle against the flow to the beginning head Spring. Paddle back to our start point and then head home!
AWS is charging $20 for the Guided River Tour Service and $40.00 if anyone needs a Paddleboard (recommended) or Kayak (if space availble).
Should be an all day event.
Has to be on your Bucket List!
For both paddles you will need to be in shape. You can always quit after lunch or anywhere during the Rainbow paddle for a super easy paddle back with the current!
