Silver Springs, one of the largest of Florida's 33 first-magnitude springs, is made up of a group of springs that occur in the headwaters, coves, and edges of the Silver River. The Silver River is the largest tributary on the Ocklawaha River. The natural beauty and naturally crystal-clear waters of Silver Springs have attracted visitors from around the world since the mid-19th century.
The Silver River and its springs are in Silver River State Park near Ocala, where access for canoeing and kayaking up to the springs is possible.
It is a beautiful river to kayak. The water is unbelievable clear and deep in some places. There is so much to see: Fish and alligators, wildlife and indigenous plants, flowers, trees ... And there are spots where you can pull over, tie off your boat, and swim in the beautiful, clear, cold water.
Boating down the Silver River to Silver Springs to see see the real Florida is a wonderful journey.
