Silver river trip we paddled 5 miles up stream from Ray Wayside Park; right up into the Silver Springs park, and around the spring. About 3 hours with many picture breaks, then 2 hours back with the current.
The river was loaded with wildlife, all very use to People so you could take alot of pictures.
Manatees, Monkeys, Turtles, Alligators, large variety of birds.
Saw, Mullet, bass, & gar fish
