Where You're Going
You'll head south on the St. Johns River past the manatee refuge at Blue Spring State Park. Get a look into the past as you sail through an 1800s cypress logging canal into the Hontoon Dead River, one of the most beautiful waterways in the valley. And be sure to keep your eyes open for alligators, turtles, and a variety of wading birds, among other wildlife.
