The noise of the busy KP Hole faded into the distance and it was just us and the river, paddling through the wide channels cutting through the marshland. Anhinga birds perched on overhanging trees to dry their wet feathers in the early morning sun. Kayaking on Florida’s Rainbow River can be an hour out or an entire day’s adventure. Here are a few tips and tricks to make your adventure a memorable one.
The Florida weather was cool, but the sun was bright during our expedition at Rainbow Springs State Park near the small town of Dunnellon, but that did not stop the brave hearted from swimming in the 72F springhead.

Blue Run Park is a hidden gem in Dunnellon. When anyone mentions the sleepy Central Florida town of Dunnellon, the first thing that comes to mind is the Rainbow River: the pristine waterway that meanders through the town, joining the black waters of the Withlacoochee River to head out to the Gulf via Lake Rousseau, but little do they know that what seems to be only a tubers exit, holds many more connections to exploring outdoor Florida.
