Definitely wouldn't take my young children there, especially near a holiday. It is more for the younger adults who like to drink alcohol. It was definitely laid back and a really neat place.

Ginnie Springs has a plethora of opportunities when it comes to diving. We had two dives and I feel like we just got started. You can free dive, open water dive, cave dive, or just swim and snorkel around. We dove Ginnie Spring then devils ear and drifted back to Ginnie spring with the current in the Santa Fe river....

This place has an extremely extensive cave system. Well beyond my abilities but if you're a cave diver you will want to vist this and surrounding areas in Florida. The place is perfectly laid out for divers and is kept impeccable clean. Water is a constant 72 degrees F so plan accordingly. If you're not cave certified you cannot enter... More

The hubby and I dove Ginnie Spring and Devil's Eye and will definitely return. Fun, easy, and beautiful dive sites! We went on a weekday and it wasn't crowded at all. A must-do for divers!

More funny to spend a whole day than blue springs, but both are amazing! Rent a kayak or something else to go river down..

Went with a few friends for a camping trip. We were having a ton of fun floating down the river, swimming and enjoying the springs. Definitely some major downsides that would deter me from returning. The park is privately owned, so unlike a State park, they can charge whatever they please. $12 for day entry and $6 for a tube... More

One of my favorite springs, Clear and spotless. Smaller than others but has great character. Somehow seems to be slightly warmer than the others.

Most relaxing place in Florida. Water is cold but perfect for the hot humid florida heat. Good food and coffee at the main building. Restrooms facilities and showers very nice, good clean grounds.

Like many other reviewers I have had several different experiences at Ginnie Springs Outdoors. If you go during the weekdays during the summer it isn't too crowded. However do during the weekends once UF and SFCC are back in full swing and you'll be in for a crowded experience. Ginnie Springs is the only spring in the area that allows... More
