Ir en el bote con el fondo de ceistal esta muy bien y el precio es muy economico. Esta muy bien cuidado el parque y muy limpio.Le hacen faltas mas cosas para ser mas entretenido y educativo. more »Going in the boat with the keistal bottom is very good and the price is very economical. It is very well maintained the park and very clean. You need more things to be more entertaining and educational.
This is the nicest state park that I have ever been to. And it has everything to do with the crystal clear springs. I found the glass-bottom boat tour very enjoyable. The boardwalk was also extra special. It was nice to find out that Silver Springs was once a hot spot for films. For instance, several Tarzan movies were filmed there along with several episodes of Sea Hunt.
This is classic old Florida. Beautiful springs, not damaged by humans, still looks similar after being in operations for over 100 years. I was here as a child in 1968 and recently returned. The boats are circa 1964 to 1972 and are well kept. The water is so clear you get to see many turtles and fish from the class bottom boats. Beautiful grounds to explore. I recommend you bring water and snacks to spend the day. Boats are handicapped accessible.
