During the Ginnie Springs Boondoggle (February 2016) a few of us planned a float trip on the Santa Fe River from the Santa Fe Canoe Outpost to Run Island which is a 7-mile trip that will last 3-hours. We used our own kayaks and unloaded our equipment along the bank of the river. We followed a guide to Rum Island to drop off our trucks. He then returned us to their launch site.
They provided us with a map with approximate time stamps with landmarks to provide us with a concept of where we were.
We had a great time on the river. The trip took about 5-hours and would have taken a little longer. The reason the trip took a a bit longer then the estimate is because we spent more time drifting towards the destination and casting and catching bream, largemouth bass, & Suwannee bass.
I would highly recommend this outfitter for anyone planning on visiting High Springs, FL for a trip down the Santa Fe River.
