Kayak Tours

Our Inverness hotel is convenient to the Gulf of Mexico and many local rivers and springs; perfect for those embarking on kayak tours. We are centrally located amongst such popular kayaking localities as the Withlacoochee River, Lake Panasoffkee, the Rainbow River of Dunnellon, 3 Sisters Spring, Homosassa Springs, the barrier islands of Fort Island Gulf Beach and the Crystal River.  Although there are many tour operations in Florida, we recommend Discovery Kayak Tours to provide you the adventure of a lifetime.

Discovery Kayak Tours is based out of Ocala, Florida and is a premier kayaking outfitter that operates in various locations of Central Florida and the Gulf and Space Coasts. With either half-day or full-day tours, Discovery offers a suite of amazing destinations including the Silver River of Silver Springs, the Rainbow River of Dunnellon, 3 Sisters Spring, Crystal River, Cape Canaveral, the Space Coast Islands, and the Ocklawaha River.  Kayak tours bring you up close and personal with Florida’s array of wildlife including friendly manatees, playful dolphins, alligators, fish, waterfowl, turtles, and even wild monkeys!

In addition to instructing on the basics of kayaking, Discovery Kayak Tours will demonstrate the richness of Florida’s various environments. Experienced and knowledgeable guides will dispense interesting facts and lessons on the local flora and fauna. Spend half the day paddling over the natural springs, aquifers, and flooded limestone caves that few tourists to Florida have the ability to explore.  Enjoy a picnic lunch on the river bank, shaded by magnolias and cypress, then enjoy snorkeling in the 72 degree turquoise water of Rainbow River.

Become enchanted with Florida’s gentle giants, the manatees, on a special kayaking tour of 3 Sisters Spring. Paddle right up to these magestic and playful creatures.  Record your vacation of a lifetime on video to show to your friends and relatives back home.

If you are embarking on one of these kayaking tours, consider staying at our nearby Inverness hotel. We can help to arrange your ideal vacation whether you are staying with us in Citrus County or nearby Marion County. To find out more about Discovery Kayak Tours, please visit their website.
