Hontoon Island and Blue Springs Snorkeling

Saturday, May 27, 2023 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Spend the day kayaking over 10 miles through the twists and turns of the St. Johns River and surrounding creeks in Delano, Florida! We will start at Hontoon Island State Park and stop half way at Blue Spring State Park for lunch. There is a potential to eat lunch with some manatees if they are still by the springs when we head out there. This trip is long, but follows the creeks and river downstream, and provides some beautiful views and experiences.

Registration open on May 15 at 12 p.m. and closes on May 25 at 4 p.m. All trips are now first-come, first-served. All trips will open two weeks before the first day of the trip.
