Wakulla Springs glass bottom boat tours (and interview) by Tommy (Hawk) Jackson

Date
1980-11-09

He discusses various animals, birds, and trees on the tour, history of the attraction, legends of the springs, Henry the pole vaulting fish, and other natural features. Boat tours have been given at the springs on since the late 1800s. Many of the 1980s drivers were descendents of those early drivers, and provide some of the same folk tales.

The springs was developed as a tourist attraction in the 1930s (and became a Florida state park in 1987.) Images of some of the drivers can be found in S 1577, v. 7.

Some of what Cooke says it difficult to hear due to background noise.
