As Florida’s oldest attraction, the Glass Bottom Boats showcase the crystal clear springs and the underwater life that naturally inhabits Silver Springs. Come enjoy one of the many daily trips up and down the Silver River where guests have the unique opportunity to see below the surface of the water and enjoy the river’s wildlife, vegetation and historical and cultural artifacts. From Native American artifacts – a row boat brought by early Spanish settlers, to movie props from the days Hollywood productions flourished in the park – the springs are yours to discover.
