If you want to go canoeing or kayaking at Weeki Wachee and don't rent from Florida Canoe, you're crazy. They are friendly people who will go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. There isn't a better shop in Florida. I have rented from them a dozen times and each time I have more fun than the last.

The Weeki Wachee is a beautiful river to paddle. The water is "crystal clear" and 72 degrees F year round. Manatees are common. I am very impressed with the concessionaire. You can rent kayaks or canoes from them, or you can launch your own boat for a modest fee. If renting they will shuttle you back to the put-in as part of the package. If using your own boat you can arrange to be shuttled for an additional fee. This means you can paddle DOWN river with the current and take a bus back to the park. I have paddled UP to the park from downstream and then returned, but that is a workout for novices. Going downstream is MUCH easier. Pack a snack if you like. Once you get out of the park area you will find some nice sand beaches where you can pull out. But please observes the signs. There are some restricted and private areas. Don't trespass, and please don't litter.
