We offer up close and personal Nature Tours on St Johns River. If you are looking for something fun to do with your family, Blue Springs is the place.
The spring is much more than a scenic area for canoeing and swimming; it’s a place that plays a vital role in the survival of the Florida manatee.
The island has pine flatwoods, palm and oak hammocks, bald cypress swamps, and marshes.
We offer kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards for self-guided hourly rentals or take a guided segway tour.

The Blue Spring Mission
Conservation measures can produce astounding results. In 1970, two years before Blue Spring State Park was established, researchers tracked 14 manatees in the spring run. By 2005, after years of park improvements and manatee protection efforts, wintering manatee numbers exceeded 200, and by 2023, that number skyrocketed to a record 729.
Besides “sea cows,” fish abound in the spring run, and these attract a variety of wading birds, ospreys, eagles, and kingfishers. To see the park’s wonders, visitors can hike along the spring run or on the 4.5-mile Pine Island Trail.
