Paddle Blue Cypress or Take a Guided Tour on Pontoon Boat



 Sunday, April 14, 2024, 8:45 AM to 11:45 AM

Come paddle or take a guided pontoon boat ride on the less traveled Blue Cypress Lake.

“This magnificent lake is approximately seven miles long and three miles wide with 21 miles of shoreline surrounded by 29,000 acres of marshes, swamps and cypress forests. It’s a place of complete surrender to Mother Nature as blue skies give way to blue-hued water which some say occur because of the reflection of the Blue Cypress trees on the lake as the morning sun rises into the sky. The lake is also a top Osprey nesting site reporting over 200 nests along the shoreline. Kayaking and canoeing up close to see Osprey nests in the wild and to marvel at the 130-foot tall cypress trees make this worth a trip. Blue Cypress Lake becomes an outdoor Shangri-La.”

The pontoon seats 6 passengers and is $150 an hour. There are two boats reserved. The individual price will be determined by who attends this event. If we can fill a boat, it will be $25. Please bring water, insect repellent, hats, sunblock, snack, and binoculars.

Those who opt to paddle must furnish own canoe or kayak.

There is no place along the banks to stop on, so snacks and rest break will take place inside the kayak.

The address is 7400 Blue Cypress Lake Road, FL

Blue Cypress Lake is just off FL State Road 60 on Blue Cypress Lake Road, about 25 miles west of the I-95 Vero Beach exit; and about 7 miles east of the Florida Turnpike Yeehaw Junction exit. We are about 1½ hours from Orlando.
Blue Cypress Lake is the headwaters of the St. John’s River that runs north and out through Jacksonville.
