Florida Springs Trip

March 22 March 24

We have planned a trip to the Florida Springs from March 8th to 10th.

For convenience reasons we are staying at the Blue Grotto Dive resort in Williston. The resort features simple cabins, with AC/heat, and private bathrooms for each room. The price includes the bunk option. Double bed and cabins with a kitchen can be booked for a small extra fee. The main reason we prefer this option is, that we are right at the dive site and save hours of driving over the weekend, compared to the next closer option that would be in Gainesville, FL.

  • The Florida Springs trip is everyone’s favorite weekend getaway in the winter.
  • The water is always 72 degrees and crystal clear. 
  • This trip is available to Students for their open water checkout dives.
  • It’s also great for divers who didn’t dive for a while and want to get back into it.
  • It’s perfect for the diver that wants to keep up the skills and comfort level over the winter month.
  • This is a great beginner diver trip with easy diving at springs like Devil’s Den, Rainbow River, Blue Grotto or Ginnie Springs.
