Blue Springs Boat Excursion

Your journey leads you to Blue Spring State Park which is widely known for its crystal clear waters allowing you to see a wide array of marine life. The same pristine beauty enjoyed by Florida’s earliest residents can still be seen today.  A boardwalk leads visitors on a self-guided tour through a lush hammock to Blue Spring.  There’s a lot to do and see here, a great place for swimming, snorkeling, fishing and picnicking. You will absolutely love it! The springs are the winter refuge (mid November – March) for the West Indian Manatees.   Live Manatee Cam

Boat excursions are conducted by licensed sea captains.  Book your tour and we can tailor a package to suit your needs.


Your Boating Excursion

Depart from Lake Monroe Park or Historic Downtown Sanford and follow the St. Johns River to Blue Spring State Park. This is approximately 25-32 miles round trip, depending on where your excursion begins. Upon arrival at Blue Spring you can view a wide array of marine life and enjoy a variety of the park’s activities such as snorkeling, tubing, swimming, geo-seeking, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and a self guided tour of the historic Thursby house. The park provides equipment rentals to enjoy these and a number of other activities. After you have enjoyed the day, we will return to Lake Monroe Park/Historic Downtown Sanford. Plan on half or a full day, depending on how much time you want to spend enjoying the activities at Blue Spring State Park.
