This All-Day Float Trip Will Make Your Florida Summer Complete

Tubing in Florida might not be as common as say, sun-tanning on the beach near the ocean’s edge. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t make your entire summer complete. Pack your swimsuits, lather on some lotion, because this is one summer adventure that you do not want to miss. Not only can you take a tube to this Florida hot spot, but you can also kayak and canoe as well. Sounds like the perfect warm weather adventure, right?

Ichetucknee River Tubing offers a unique experience to spend the entire day afloat in Florida.

TUBING IN FLORIDA

Where is the best place to go tubing in Florida?

Most visitors to the Sunshine State wouldn’t expect tubing in Florida to be such a fun adventure, especially with all the beautiful oceans taking top priority. However, one of the best places for Florida tubing is Ichetucknee River. This pristine river in Northern Central Florida is about 6 miles in length with an average of 20-feet in width and 5-feet in depth. Flowing slowly through the shaded hammocks and the floodplain forests, this spectacular river is as easy-going as it is easy-flowing. Plus it doesn’t hurt that the majority of the river lies within the stunning Ichetucknee Springs State Park!

What else can I do besides tubing at Ichetucknee?

There are so many wonderful ways to enjoy the Ichetucknee River outside of the tube or canoe adventures. Since the river is located within the Ichetucknee Springs State Park, visitors can enjoy the afternoon through a variety of different experiences. While the main draw of the park happens to be the eight main crystalline springs that come together to form the river, visitors can also enjoy the surrounding landscapes, natural wildlife, and scenic beauty. With three different nature trails within the lush park forest, hiking is another fan-favorite for things to do in Florida within this area.

Does Florida have clean rivers? 

For those wondering whether or not Florida has clean rivers, have no fear. Florida officials, residents, and businesses all make it a priority that the waterways in the Sunshine State are protected and maintained for all to enjoy. Since Florida springs provide the foundation for critical groundwater to rivers and estuaries, the quality of the water remains of high integrity. This ensures that Florida paddle boarding and kayaking in Florida can be enjoyed by all for many years to come.
