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

  • Dec 13, 2014 · 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

    Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy a beautiful day on this amazing river. We had so much fun, saw a bunch of Manatees, and had a great time over lunch at the Upper Deck. You all are what make our group so special.

      I've been thinking of you! Get Well soon! It sucks being sick over the holidays! A lot of people around me have been sick with the flu! They predicted the wrong flu virus this year! You're doing the right thing! ������ That's for rest!

      December 13, 2014

    I'm going to have to back out too. I worked late and haven't loaded my kayak. This is one of my favorite and hate to miss it. Have fun!

    December 12, 2014

  • Craig G.

    I hope everyone received and read my e mail. We'll use the out fitter to shuttle us back to our cars, cost is $13.00. Please bring exact bills and give to me as I check you in!

    If you need to rent a Kayak, please comment here on this thread. Also, if you plan on renting, you will need to Prepay on Paypal or there will NOT be a Kayak available for you.

    December 3, 2014

    • Carol M.

      Hi Craig. I prepaid for a kayak. Confirmation number begins with[masked]-XXXX-XXXX. Thank you! Looking forward to the paddle with everyone.

      December 6, 2014

    • Sam G.

      Carol and Jeff A have paid.

    With my bad knee I am planning on using the shuttle to bring myself and the yak back. They can drag it out of the water for me! Smile !!!

    December 3, 2014

    • Craig G.

      Yes, they are very helpful.

    We plan to call Paddling adventures to see if we can secure a group rate. With a large group, and limited parking at Rogers Park, I'm leaning towards using paddling adventures to shuttle both paddler and kayaks from Rogers park to Weekie Wachie. The cost of the shuttle is $10.00. 6 to launch, 10 f or the shuttle.

    • Adam T.

      Not sure what the parking situation will be for the trip, but Roger's has been mostly a ghost town lately :P

    After the paddle, lets head over to the Upper Deck at Rogers Park for lunch and libations. They have great food, particularly the wings.

    Craig, this is my first outing with the group and I have a question. I see that there is a "ticket" selection at the top of the page, I am wondering the procedures for renting the kayaks etc. Thanks.

    November 26, 2014

    • Craig G.

      Just let sam and I know, and we'll have a kayak for you. $30.00

    Hi Sam. I will need to rent a kayak, and can prepay on paypal. Thank you!

    Last time I did this, we used the outfitter to bring us and our kayaks back to the launch site. Will our group use our cars for shuttle?

    November 11, 2014

    • Craig G.

      Martin, we normally shuttle ourselves. We'll keep you posted.

    If you are renting kayaks from Sam that is Great!! If you are renting them from the folks at Weeki Wachee, I would highly suggest you call and reserve them asap, as they are very busy and rent out quickly.

      OK Great- I did not know how many kayaks you can carry.

      November 10, 2014

    • Craig G.

      Most us do have our own. For the few that don't. and want to try several before buying, renting from members is the best way to check out many different Kayaks to see what you like.

    Is this close to the myacta camping event? I believe it's the same weekend.
