About the Event
Whether swimming, snorkeling, diving or just sitting on the shore, you are sure to find something to enjoy here, and keep coming back for.
Only open-water scuba diving is permitted and divers must be certified; no solo diving is allowed.
Nestled in the shallow water of the spring run are the remains of the Civil War-era steamboat Madison which was scuttled in 1863 to keep it from being captured. A hidden gem in north-central Florida,
The sunken wreck of the ship Madison is a particularly fascinating area to explore at the mouth of the spring, it’s ghostly imprint still visible on clear water days.
The main spring area has some shallow and some deeper areas, for swimming and diving respectively. A multitude of fish are visible from both the surface and underwater, making the submerged world of the spring resplendent with life and color.
