Home of the famous glass bottom boats, Silver Springs has offered the amazing tour for the last 100 years. View "nature's underwater fairyland" without getting wet! See thousands of fish, dozens of turtles, and maybe even an alligator or two. The boat captains will expertly guide you to dozens of springs, including three different first magnitude springs, such as the mammoth spring, the abyss, and the blue grotto.
