We also offer a nice boat ride on the Rainbow River. The river starts at the Rainbow Springs attraction and then flows for six miles and converges with the Withlacoochee River. The fantasic thing about this river are the many shallow areas that plunge into deep springs, which are always crystal clear. If you choose to, we can stop and you can snorkel at any of the springs down the river (the main spring is off-limits to boats). READ MORE
