Kayaking at Wekiva Falls

Few activities give the outdoor enthusiast such a varied array of experiences as kayaking. Whether you are seeking the heart-stopping exhilaration of a roller coaster or the serenity and peace of getting lost in the moment, you can find your passion in a kayak.

There are many different types of kayaking. While whitewater kayaking involves navigating swift moving rivers, the waters at Wekiva Falls are considered Flatwater, kayaking that takes place in large bodies of calm water that can include anything from a brief lazy day on the water to a long day kayaking on the ocean. Our guests love to fish from their kayaks too.

People from all walks of life are becoming addicted to flatwater kayaking at Wekiva Falls. Some are die-hard kayakers while others thrive on a leisurely paddle along a quiet and secluded body of water. And others do it simply for the relaxation and light exercise.

Whatever your circumstance, one thing is certain. The indescribable feeling you get from stepping into a kayak, pushing away from land, dipping the kayak’s paddle into the water, and taking that first stroke! As you leave your cares, problems, and stresses on the banks and shores of your lives, you are floating, and you are free.
Kayaking is for anybody looking for an opportunity to get out and enjoy the outdoors. In addition to being a fun, easy, and enjoyable, kayaking is also a great low-impact workout.

And if you don’t own a kayak, don’t worry. You can rent a kayak at our marina, right here at Wekiva Falls.
