Weeki Wachee..Mermaids,Man­atees and Crystal Clear Water!!!

  • Jun 9, 2013 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Weeki Wachee is a fan favorite. Crystal clear water extends through the whole run; where just about any spot you choose to get out and play is great. It's a major spring that does create a very swift current in the upper six miles.

The river is a haven for manatee with its one hundred cubic feet of year-round 72 degree water of unusual clarity bubbles continuously from a large spring rising from the limestone bottom of the headwaters of the river, a novelty which created a famous underwater attraction.

Putin at outfitters next to W.W. attraction. We will take out at Rodgers Park.

$6.00 launch fee to outfitters inside park.

$3.00 parking fee at Rodgers Park.

**After unloading at outfitters, DO NOT leave vehicles inside outfitters parking lot, they close and lock gate in early afternoon. Park outside in W.W. attraction parking lot.

Rodgers Park: 7244 Shoal Line Blvd, Spring Hill, FL

      I'd love to join you all on a smaller weekday paddle. Much more peaceful. Please contact me through my slackers info if you are going. Terry Meza

    Are we going to work out some kind of shuttle for this? I would like to leave my kayak at the gate and drive to Rogers Park. With some else's help, we could then come back to the launch area. Any takers?

    June 8, 2013

    • Ronda G

      A "SLACKER SHUTTLE" is always arranged by our wonderful leader!

      1 · June 8, 2013

      Just unload kayak and gear..move them close to but not blocking ramp. pay for launch, keep receipt...then the group goes to Rogers park, .leaving any extra folks to mind the kayaks. At Rogers, do not pay until Sam trip leader works out which cars stay at Rogers and how many cars are needed to shuttle drivers back. Once the shuttle cars are selected, everyone else pays at Rogers. Then you shuttle back to launch. Sometimes you have to park outside since they MAY close the gate. Obviously only one person per car should ride to Rogers to shuttle. You need the receipt for the launch to show the attendant at the water. This is how it worked last time. There are bathrooms at both Rogers and at the launch entrance. Hope this helps and have a lovely trip.

    I currently have 4 kayaks rented. Pauline (2), Michael G (1), and Carol M (1). If anyone else needs to rent a kayak please pay here on paypal so that we can bring you a kayak. If you don't pay above you will not get a kayak from me. You can rent kayaks at the put in from the local outfitter.
