This month: Silver Springs Guided Boat Tour in Ocala, FL 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM $55.
The breathtaking Silver Springs became a tourist attraction in the 1820s. In the late 1870s, Phillip Morrell fixed a piece of glass in the bottom of a rowboat to better show visitors what was beneath the surface. Today, Silver River's Glass Bottom Boat Tours have been world-famous for more than 100 years. We will begin with lunch in Ocala, FL, followed by a 90-minute guided tour on one of the famous glass-bottom boats.
