We’ve been alerted by one of our readers – who also happens to be the business owner – that there is a new shuttle service available for paddlers on the Silver River! Called the Silver Springs Shuttle, it will help you with the logistics of planning a paddle down the Silver River with your own kayak or canoe.
How it works: you drop off your kayak or canoe with the livery at Silver Springs State Park, and drive your car down to Ray Wayside Park so it’s waiting for you at the other end. Shuttles leave Ray Wayside Park on the hour between 10 AM and 2 PM to take you up to Silver Springs so you can launch on your adventure.
Fees apply, of course, including park fees at both ends, launch fee, and shuttle fee. Check their website for the current fee schedule.
