Rainbow Springs

Your Adventure Awaits...


This paddle is what any outdoor enthusiast or adventure-seeker is looking for.
Year round we experience over 14 different type of birds, fish, turtles, otters, alligators, and other wildlife.

The best part of it all, is that you have a chance to see some of these directly below your Clear Kayak!

Our Clear Kayaks are not like any other! These are 100% clear kayaks, made of 100%  GE™ Lexan™  6mm,
commonly used in bulletproof glass and submarine viewports!

You have the opportunity to take a quick swim if you choose to along our 2-2.5 hour paddle! We encourage taking a splash into the fresh spring water! Clear kayaking in Rainbow Springs is the best way to adventure these amazing waterways!
