Invoices must be paid prior to arriving to the Meadows Center for your tour through our online payment system. After we receive your payment, we will send you a digital ticket for your family.

Spring Lake is available for glass-bottom boat tours on a reservation-only basis Monday-Sunday (9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.).
