APOPKA, Fla. — Take a trip back in time to a Jurassic jungle hidden away in Central Florida. King's Landing in Apopka offers pristine water running under a canopy of beautiful trees.

To make the experience even better, try hitting the water in a crystal-clear kayak.

Get Up and Go Kayaking offers daily tours along Rock Springs Run, which includes a beginner/intermediate paddle upstream with a relaxing drift back to the launch site.

Only a short drive from Orlando, Rock Springs is a great trip for those looking for crystal clear water in crystal clear kayaks.

The first half of the paddle is a little bit of a workout, but the float back is worth the effort! There are several deeper areas (4-6 feet deep) where participants can take a quick swim if they choose.

The majority of the paddle is only about 2-4 feet deep which makes it easy for getting out to enjoy the water on one of the few breaks along the way.

Nature surrounds the clear spring water everywhere you turn. Animals you may see: turtles, birds, fish, otters, deer, alligators, and more!
