It was an easy paddle with lots of wildlife along the way. We encountered Herons, Cormorants, Ibis, a few Gators, and lots of Turtles. The water is crystal clear. The bottom is easily visible at 30 feet.
The real treat came as we approached the springhead. We encountered a magnificent Bald Eagle and a troop of about 20 Rhesus monkeys. Legend has it that the monkeys escaped about 30 years ago during the filming of some Tarzan movies or a glass bottom boat tour owner put them on an Island to attract tourists and he did not realize they could swim. In any case they were a real treat to see in the wild.
The Silver River is a five star kayak trip.
