HISTORIC GLASS BOTTOM BOAT CRUISE
Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park
Date: Saturday, 9:00am to 10:30am
The Department of Environmental Protection’s Wakulla Springs State Park : Let your family experience living history as Park Ranger Don Gavin takes you back to the days when the Wakulla Spring was gin clear and the booming voices of glass bottom boat captains sang out across its waters. Don's first-person experience will bring to life the characters, the development, and the nuances of the traditional glass bottom boat tour. Even though the waters of the spring may be dark, Don's narrative, with the glass bottom tour following, will shed light on what used to be. A rare opportunity not to be missed.
