Paradise Springs Cavern Tour
December 10, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm$80.25
On December 10th, join us for one of the most beautiful dives in Florida. Paradise springs is a privately-owned dive site with a true cavern that goes from 20 feet up to 100/110 feet. Fossils and small freshwater fish, fill the limestone ballroom, as your eyes adjust to the light and a gigantic prehistoric whale bone protrudes from its side. Stone steps lead you down to a small opening that opens up into a clear, blue, 72-degrees bowl. This cavern offers some of the most beautiful photo opportunities.
The tour includes divemaster and 2 air tanks. Pair this trip with a course (Advanced or Cavern) and receive a discount!
Unlike many other springs, Paradise does not have a flow running through the cavern. It is also known as a karst window, or an opening to an underwater stream. The dive site is only open three days a week and is very sensitive to damage. Having proper fin kicks and buoyancy control is very important to control damage and silting of this beautiful cavern. There is a small cave after the bottom cavern but it is clearly marked with signage. Only certified cave divers are allowed past that point.
This is an advanced dive. Please call the shop for more information on skill level or comfort level: 813-832-6669.
