We have tube trips starting in May and kayak trips are available here at Poe Springs starting on April 1st it makes for some very exiting Adventures!


From US 27 back down to Poe Springs is our lazy 2-3 hour tube float, that allows for Adventurers to see 3 islands, and 3 shoals which are the laziest rapids ever.

Super relaxing, and an Adventure you won't soon forget!

Our kayak trips start here at Poe Springs and you end your trip at Santa Fe River Park. There you will hop aboard our shuttle bus and be driven back to Poe Springs. This amazing down river paddle, allows Adventurers to see 8 springs in 8 miles. Creating memories the entire way!
