Head out of town away from the traffic and crowds of the Orlando tourist zone to swim in the crystal clear waters of nearby Wekiwa Springs, where the water is a refreshing 72 degrees year-round!
The natural swimming spring is located in the woodsy setting of one of the area’s beautiful state parks, a perfect place for enjoying the clean, fresh water as well as spreading out a blanket, relaxing in the Florida sun and having a picnic. Individual size flotation devices are allowed in the swimming area.
This state park is where many local Orlandoans go to enjoy fresh water flowing from the underground Florida aquifer and is not generally well known to most tourists. Wekiwa Springs provides a memorable “real Florida” leisure experience in a truly natural setting that you will remember long after your visit!
Approximately 4 hours total. Please note that Orlando traffic conditions can vary widely while I-4 is under construction. This tour typically operates March – December.
