Rainbow River Tour
- Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Crystal River, FL
- Product code: Rainbow
The Rainbow River tour is a great experience for both divers and snorkelers alike. You will be drifting down the 4th largest spring system in the state of Florida as well as one of the top 10 clearest rivers in the United States. You may see Fish, Turtles, and sometimes Otters. Long beds of flowing ell grass, bird of a variety of species and much more.
The deepest depth of the river is 25 ft. so snorkelers can free dive as well as this depth gives divers longer bottom time than deeper dives. While drifting the Rainbow River the boat carries the diver down flag so you don’t have to. Don’t forget to bring your camera the view is amazing.
You will depart from our facilities at the Plantation On Crystal River and follow us by car to the KP Hole park in Dunellon. There we will board the boat and travel roughly 1.5- 2 miles up river where we will get in and begin the drift back to the park.
