Ginnie Springs

You could say we saved our favorite for last. Come for the day or stay for the night. Swim, snorkel, or SUP in the crystal-clear springs. Canoe, kayak or tube on the Santa Fe River (gear for all is rentable on site when available). Feeling extra adventurous? There’s even scuba rentals and lessons. Visit Ginnie Springs Outdoors for all seasonal updates and pricing.
