Silver Springs Paddle

Needs a location

Join Rising Tides, St. Johns Riverkeeper’s young professionals group, for a stand up paddleboard paddle of Silver Springs! Explore the flora and fauna along the Silver River with a guide from The Salty Paddle.

Find details and registration on St. Johns Riverkeeper's website.

We will Paddle along the historic structures and serene landscapes surrounding the main spring and trails. There’s no telling what you will see in your travels down the river, but whatever it is, you will love it. All of your scenes will come alive with the river’s beauty, sounds, smells, and wildlife spotting. Join us as we are enraptured by the Ocala National Forest and it’s pristine spring waters.
