My dive partner and I dove paradise springs today. It's a very low key place and a little hard to find if you don't know where you're going. Owners are nice. Visibility was fairly goof we only had a few divers before we arrived. I would dive it again, but not for a little while. First dive lasted just over 40 minutes. Second dive we cut a little short just because we we're tired, but had a good day over all.

What a great place! The dive was interesting and exciting. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Rustic location. Easy to follow rules.

Overall, a must dive! The fossils are amazing!

If you are a springs and cavern diver you'll enjoy this dive. The property owners are really nice and very accommodating. Ask them questions before your dive. They are a wealth of knowledge. The bottom is a little silty so make sure you've got buoyancy control or your dive buddies will hate you. There are many fossils throughout the cavern too. Finding the place is an adventure in itself. I'll be back. It is a really fun dive, probably the best spring dive in N Central Florida.

I suggest you get there early as possible before others silt it up. winter is better, summer you get green algae.The park itself is nothing special.
