GET AWAY FROM IT ALL ON THE RIVER

Take a few hours to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Silver River and get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.  Surround yourself with Mother Nature and one of her many treasures.

Among the special sights often encountered are the Rhesus Monkeys, Ducks, Otters, and the vast population of Birds.   You will see Turtles sharing a log with a resident Alligator, all basking in the sun.  We eagerly await the return of the ever increasing number of Manatees as cooler weather approaches.

All the wildlife on the River can be considered tame as laws have been put into place to protect them and the waterway.  As you travel by boat, you will get as close as you have ever been to experiencing these animals in their natural environment.  To top it off,  the gin clear water allows you to view the different fishes and aquatic life, as well as the many springs along your way.

With our departure location just three miles from the city limits, the Silver River is within easy reach of all who visit Ocala/Marion County.  Schedule a trip out on an early weekday morning and enjoy having the River and all it has to offer all to yourself.

See you on the River!

ABUNDANT WILDLIFE ON THE RIVER

Spring has finally arrived! This is a great time of year for seeing the River. The weather is pleasant and the wildlife is plentiful. Capt. Nick just spotted the largest manatee he has seen on the Silver River, and the birds are abundant with migratory birds swelling the normal population. An early departure is best in order to see the River when the wildlife has not yet been disturbed by visitors.

The spring Largemouth Bass bite on the Ocklawaha River is very good right now. For those who are unfamiliar with the area, the Silver and Ocklawaha Rivers converge. Fishing is prohibited on the Silver River, but is much enjoyed on the Ocklawaha.

Until next time…see you on the Rivers!

The Silver River Amazes Us With Each Trip

The Silver River continues to amaze us with each trip. There is always a new experience watching the wildlife along the River. This time of year you will be able to see the alligators taking in the sun, the monkeys perhaps cannonballing into the River, and the many birds busy feeding their newly hatched offspring.

As the days heat up it is best to get an early start. The afternoons will soon start bringing in the afternoon showers that happen as the sea breeze crosses the state. If you can get off the water by 1 p.m. you stand your best chance of avoiding the heat and the rain.

If you take your trip down the River with us you are always welcome to bring along food and beverage and have a picnic as you tour the waterway.
