Rainbow River Night Dive
May 23, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us Saturday night on May 23, for our Rainbow River Night Dive, an easy drift dive down a 6-mile river flowing South from a headspring near Dunnellon pumping hundreds of gallons of fresh water per day. Before merging with the Withlacoochee, the river conjoins with several smaller springs – making this the perfect shallow drift dive of only 15 to 20-feet deep. Divers start at the dock, loading into a 24-foot pontoon boat making way North where divers are dropped off with an Adventure Outfitters divemaster drifting South where you will encounter a variety of sleeping fish, Florida Gar through the grass, Pseudemys turtles, also referred to as Florida cooters, freshwater shrimp and more!
When: Saturday, May 23, 7:30 p.m. – on the pontoon boat by 8 p.m.
Where: Meet at KP Hole Park – Rainbow River located at 9435 S.W. 190th Avenue Road, Dunnellon, FL 34432
What you should expect to see: Spring-fed river known for clear water. Lots of wildlife at night including Florida Cooter turtles, gars and largemouth bass.
Cost: $50 – includes site orientation, local fish identification, one air tank/fill, divemaster-led tour and boat charter
