On cold winter mornings you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the chimney opening. Thus, the early settlers gave the name Devil's Den. With crystal clear water, year round 72 degree water temperatures, ancient rock formations with stalactites, fossil beds dating back 33 million years, and much more, you're guaranteed to leave with memories that will last a lifetime!
Bought in 1993 by our current owners, this natural wonder has been transformed from a simple scuba diving site to a world class tourist attraction. Visit one of North America's most prehistoric places, Devil's Den Spring! This underground spring inside a dry cave has been home to many extinct animal fossils dating back to the Pleistocene Age, which are on display at The University of Florida's Museum of Natural History.
We take a water taxi out of KP hole Park to the head of the spings. We are dropped there as a group and we drift the 3 miles back. It averages 20 feet deep and the water has about 60 foot visability. We pass numerous springs and caverns as we drift back down stream to the KP hole Park. There are tons of fish, turtles and even birds that dive down to swim along side you.
This is an awesome diver's paradice with something for everyone. There is an open water environment with platforms at 30 feet for students. The first level of the cavern extends to 60 feet. It is well lit and the opening can be seen from anywhere inside. It also has a fresh air bell attatched to the celing of the cavern (remember to talk softly inside te bell). For the advanced diver there is a secondary cavern that extends to 100 feet. This part of the carvern does not have direct site of the exit and is not well lit. Do not dive beyond your training. Students may NOT enter any overhead environment.
Ginnie Springs is a crystal clear site year round regardless of how many divers are mucking up the area due to the tremendous amount of water flowing out of the spring head. Some 35,000,000 gallons of fresh spring water a day rush out of the spring source into the "Ballroom", a cavern in the spring. This sweeps out all debris and keep the water crystal clear.
