We’ll stay 2 nights at the Hampton Inn in Gainesville. It’s conveniently located right off I-75 and we’ll have daily breakfast included. The drive time to Blue Grotto and Devils Den is about 25 minutes.

  • 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.
