Disney and all that it's offers the Orlando tourist, provides exactly what it says on the tin; excitement, buzz, crowds, noise, screaming and cash sapping opportunities for the family. Wekiwa Springs in contrast offers you peace, tranquility and a natural experience, all from the comfort...More

A great family day out. Rent a kayak and go quietly through the streams to see gators and turtles, birds and more. Good BBQ stations. A great swimming hole in the spring, albeit a little colder than they will have you believe. Lovely boardwalks too....More

I loved every minute of it. The day wasnt too sunny so we could enjoy canoeing and, even thought I was terrified, we safely saw some wild life and then enjoyed the springs. Take some food and a cover to nap on the grass, the...More

Beautiful spring creek easy to float. You can rent inner tubes outside the park ($10+ each) or just bring your own. Great for kids. The water isn't very deep in most places. Nice grassy areas to relax on and have a picnic. There were hiking...More

Prudence, I don't know for sure but I would think tubing is okay. I doubt there is a renatl place nearby. Try calling the park. I'm sure they could tell you.

I know there is a swimming area so you should be able to scuba dive. I don't think it's very deep though.

No, Scuba diving is not permitted without prior permission. There are places on the Wekiva River where you can scuba dive and one or two deep holes.
