Great to escape city and theme parks for a day. Lovely springs for swimming and canoeing. Great walking trails up to smaller lake nearby - superb. No need for boots - trainers are fine

No, Scuba diving is not permitted without prior permission. There are places on the Wekiva River where you can scuba dive and one or two deep holes.
To the locals... After this past summer and the horrific gator attack at Disney Resort, we are nervous about going into any water in FL other than the ocean. I also noticed that a swimmer was killed last October at the Blue Spring State Park. Have you seen/heard of any issues with this in the 'spring' swimming area? Thanks!
