like? The Withlacoochee trip is 9
miles which is 3 to 4 hours paddling, or 5 to 6 hours drifting (4 to 6
hour average.) Much more remote than the Rainbow trip, but not a pure
spring, so it's not crystal clear like the Rainbow. It's tannic
tinted like most Florida Rivers.
Does the RainbowRiver
K.P. Hole Float have to be only 2 to 3 hours? What's it like?
The Rainbow trip is 4.5 miles downstream which is 2 hours paddling, 3
hours drifting, but can be up to 7.5 miles (3 to 5 hour average) if you
paddle to the headsprings. RainbowRiver
is Crystal Clear, one of the largest springs in the world, but not a very
remote trip, unlike the Withlacoochee.
Are there places to stop along the way on either trip? There
are only a few public areas along the way, so pick your stops carefully.
If you do stop, please stay out of the tree branches! They're full
of wasp nests!
What exactly does the no-disposable food and
drink container law mean? If you are bringing food and drinks,
please make sure they are in non-disposable, dishwasher-safe containers.
There are many city, county, and state officials that patrol the river and
they can fine you for having disposable food or drink containers in your
boat. Don't have Coke cans, Gatorade bottles, Doritos bags, etc.
They are illegal on the Rainbow! Thermos', travel mugs, tupperware,
gladware, camelbacks, nalgene bottles, etc. are all dishwasher safe and
reusable. These are legal on the Rainbow.
