About this trip

Turquoise waters, abundant wildlife and a plethora of outdoor activities draw nature lovers to the freshwater springs, an often overlooked natural gem in Florida. Thanks to underground aquifers, about 800 billion gallons of water flow through limestone, some of which will bubble up to form more than 700 of the natural springs in Florida every single day. That’s the largest collection anywhere on earth! Join us as we discover this tropical outdoor oasis in central Florida. 


Highlights Include:

  • Kayak through crystal-clear, turquoise rivers
  • Snorkel alongside alligator gar, diving birds and softshell turtles. 
  • Camp beneath the stars 
  • Enjoy the warmth of a campfire with friends
