Wekiva River (Middle Section) Wekiva Island to Wekiva Fall

We will put in at the Wekiva Marina (now Wekiva Island) and paddle to Wekiva Falls. This is a very easy paddle . We will be going with the current and it is only about 9-10 miles. We will stop for lunch and should be out of the water around 2:30pm. We will meet at Wekiva Marina (now Wekiva Island) at 9:00am and shuttle our cars to Wekiva Falls.

Miami Springs Dr. is off Wekiva Springs Dr. across from Hunt Club Blvd.

    Fun and hot! Nothing like an "epic" water gun battle to cool things off!

    Very nice section of river with lots of fish, birds, and the occasional gator. Had a good time seeing friends I hadn't seen for a while and making new friends. It was my friend Angie's first meetup and she enjoyed it. Sam did a fine job keeping this many people organized.

    Description says easy paddle. Someone left a comment that says challenging rapids. Just wondering if this is a good spot for a beginner. My dad's pretty new to kayaking. Thanks

      ...and the leaches !!!

      People often ask me questions about the Wekiva River since I am a self proclaimed semi-expert !!! If for some unexplainable reason that you are thrown willy nilly out of the safety of your kayak...the first and most important thing to do is stand up and walk with your kayak to shore. Yes, there will be copious amounts of laughter and innocent name calling, but ignore Sam and press on !!

    Do I have to pay the 30 if I have my own kayak?

    If you are going to Wekiva Falls Resort, at the front entrance, tell them you are kayaking, and the entrance fee was $5 (or $6) last time I was there.
