Swim Picnic at Wekiwa’s Natural Springs!

Price From:

¥511,50

Tour Overview

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!

Sunny’s Local Tips and Bits:

The water in the springs comes from underground is tends to be cooler, but you will likely find your body adjusting quickly under the hot Florida sun. There are also canoes to rent on site to paddle on the Wekiwa river just outside the swimming zone.

Other:

This tour is only offered in English. Florida weather is unpredictable and may impact the tour. If the springs are closed or deemed unsafe by our guide due to weather conditions prior to commencement of the tour, Original Orlando Tours will offer a substitute tour at the original day and time, offer a credit to be used on any future Original Orlando Tours adventure, or fully refund the tour fee, the choice of which is at the option of our special guests impacted by the weather disruption. There are no refunds once the tour has commenced (i.e., the vehicle has left your departure point). This tour also includes an Orlando discount savings booklet. We suggest wearing a hat, comfortable shoes and sunscreen to make your tour an enjoyable one. The facilities at Wekiwa Springs State Park contain three restrooms: one in the picnic area, one at the rear of the park’s concession and one above the swimming area. The swimming area restroom contains changing rooms. Diving and jumping are not permitted. No lifeguards are on duty. Snorkelers and swimmers do so at their own risk.

  • "Yes beautiful water, but a bit chilly!"
    This was a lovely day out and the waters were truly beautiful, but they are a bit chilly. My boys rented a kayak for next to nothing and said they saw alligators and turtles along the way. Not for me! But I'll be back next year for the whole beauty of it all. Relaxing day out of the city.

    "So relaxed"
    This sweet little watering hole was such a nice find, it was a beautiful day out but the water was colder than I expected, but still very refreshing! The travel was very good and the tour guide gave us a ton of neat information about the area.

    "Bring some snorkeling masks"
    If this is something you're planning on doing make sure to grab some goggles or snorkeling masks as being able to go underwater and see everything makes all the difference. Our guide was super helpful and if we come back to Orlando I'll definitely go on another tour

    "Relaxing Southern Day"
    If this is how the south lives, we're moving here! Crystal clear fresh water. Yeah, it was cold at first, but you get used to it and then it feels great in the Florida heat. Picnic lunch was provided and it was the best chicken I think I've ever tasted. This triip far exceeded my expectations. Thank you Miss Sarah, you were wonderful with my kids!!

    "Already booked for Next Year"
    As some of the others have said it's cold at first but don't skip this tour over that because you will be so sorry. It's so beautiful there and you can see right to the bottom. We didn't have time for the kayaking this year, but after reading other reviews right before i posted this one, I realize that was a big mistake to not do it and I should have listened to the guide. But my dates are set for 2019 and already have our day on hold. Also planning on the steemship tour in Sanford so looking to read more about others experience on that one.
