Looking through the Glass

Glass Bottom Boats At Silver Springs State Park

Iconic glass-bottom boats wait for passengers by Silver Springs, the headwaters of the 4.5 mile long Silver River. Since the 1870’s, boats with clear glass panels in the bottom have carried tourists along the river to see fish, turtles, ‘gators, birds, springs and more. We had a lovely time aboard one with friends recently and enjoyed the clear view beneath the water.

  1. The Silver Springs glass bottom boat tour and the stroll around the park made for a lovely morning. Only made better by spending it with you and Fairy.
