More carpooling, rental and trip info to come. But here is the basic lowdown on this trip.
Tour #1: Weeki Wachee to Rogers Park (6 miles - easy)
This downriver-only trip begins at the canoe and kayak outfitter located immediately south of the Weeki Wachee Spring attraction. You can either bring your own boat or rent a kayak or canoe. The trip usually takes between 3 and 4 hours, depending if you stop for lunch on the way to Rogers Park.
Fees: If you bring your own boat, the launch fee is $7 and a return shuttle is $15 per boat. If you decide not to use the outfitter's shuttle, leave a car parked at Roger's park for your return trip. Prices current as of May 2006.
Starting at the canoe outfitter, you can paddle about 200 yards upstream to where a sign in the river indicates no vessels can proceed past that point. The "Wilderness Cruise" boats from the Weeki Wachee attraction are docked here. The tour boats may be your companion for the first 1 1/2 miles of the river. Fortunately, they are electric and generally well-behaved.
Turn downstream and paddle approximately 3 miles to reach the first beach. This, and a second beach located about 1/2 mile downstream, have undergone much development in the past few years. Both are property of the Withlacoochee Wildlife Management Area and a $3 landing / access fee applies. At the top of the 15' tall sandy terraced bluff are picnic tables that make a nice place for lunch. Expect crowds at both beaches.
About one mile past the second beach you will reach a developed area with canals. Be sure to go left at every junction in the river. Rogers Park is on the south side of the river just before the SR 595 bridge. If you have rented canoes or kayak, your takeout will be near the Weeki Wachee Christian Camp. Call the shop and they will retrieve you and the boats. If you brought your own boat, you'll need to use your shuttle vehicle to get back to the canoe outfitter.
