The seven-mile run of the Silver River, from the outflow of the big spring to a confluence with the Ocklawaha River, is one of the most beautiful stretches of wilderness river in Florida.
At a flow rate of about 3 miles per hour, the Silver River provides a breathtaking scenic experience. If you have sunglasses with polarizing lenses, you'll be able to look right through the clear water to observe turtles, garfish, big bass and many other freshwater creatures. And don't overlook the grasses and other plants that live underwater. As you drift, look for hardwood trees, a wide variety of shrubs and sabal palms on the banks, a number of aquatic plants along the river's edge, basking alligators on the banks and many other varieties of wildlife.
The Silver river is "Florida's primo spring run." Grab your camera, your binoculars and some drinking water, and treat yourself to a magnificent day on a carefully preserved and protected stretch of one of the most unusual rivers in the world. It's one of the best day-long wild adventures Florida has to offer.
