When most think of paddling Florida, they think of the Everglades and perhaps kayaking in the Florida Keys. Florida has an amazing network of rivers from the River of Grass, otherwise known as the Everglades, to the Panhandle, and throughout the state. This picture was taken from the Santa Fe River in northern Florida. The Santa Fe River actually flows into the famous Suwannee River. This picture is typical beautiful Florida with sal palmettos, spanish moss hanging from the trees, and cypress knees on the shoreline.

I love anything with Santa Fe in it-lol. You’re brave canoeing in waters that gaters patrol.

I actually think it looks like a lovely place to canoe. Wonder if bear spray works on a gator?

We saw a few gators, but no big ones on this stretch.
Are there any rapids on the river, or is it just “smooth sailing” for the entire trip?

It is mainly smooth sailing. Florida is flat as a pancake, so no rapids. The river does go underground for a stretch in the Santa Fe State Park.
I love to canoe but the gators are keeping me from doing it. Are you not afraid of getting eaten by one? Lol. I guess I’m just too paranoid.
Thanks for sharing!

I would not swim in this river, but I am not afraid of canoeing. Gators will leave you alone for the most part.
Nice place i guess .. But it should be kept in mind that nature is always dangerous when it is most beautiful …
