Get Wet ‘n’ Wild

Ginnie Springs gives you all the resources needed to make the most out of your time in the great outdoors. Tubing along the Sante Fe River is a popular choice among visitors, but there is so much more to do in our park. You can also simply swim and enjoy the company of your friends and family. If you are up for an adventure, rent a mask, snorkel, and fins and explore all the natural wonders the springs have to offer. From paddleboarding to volleyball, there is something for everyone at Ginnie Springs.

Swimming & Snorkeling

Take a dip and explore the wonders of our seven springs. Swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear 72 degree water is fun year round. Masks, fins, and snorkels can be rented at the Ginnie Springs Store. When the Santa Fe River clears (typically in the summer and early fall), snorkeling in the river may reward you with glimpses of large gar, bass, mullet, catfish, turtles and many other critters. If you venture out in the river in snorkel gear, be sure to take a diver’s flag and float along. The Santa Fe is a navigable waterway, and state law dictates that you must have a flag and float with you at all times. If you don’t have your own flag, you can rent one.  
All rentals require a deposit and are due back by 6 P.M. on return date.

Tube the Santa Fe

What could be more fun than tubing lazily down the Santa Fe River? Most guests enter the water at the Beaver’s Landing river access point with a tube or raft, and spend an hour or so floating down the river to the Tube Exit at Twin Spring. When you exit at Twin Spring, follow the Tube Trail and back to the Ginnie Spring parking lot, it’s about a fifteen-minute walk. Tube rentals are available at the Ginnie Springs General Store. There is a free air fill station for tubes and rafts if you choose to bring your own.

 

Tube Rentals

Single Tube $6.00 (per day)
Double Tube $12.00 (per day)

Canoes, Kayaks, & Stand Up Paddle Boards

Take a canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard out on the Santa Fe River. There is no better way to get in touch with nature. You can bring your own canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard. No worries if you don’t have one, we’ve got you covered with a rental. Be sure to paddle upstream when you begin your paddling trip and return the vessel to the launch site, as there is no pick-up service available. Rental vessels are not allowed to be out after dark
