Blue Grotto/Devil's Den Dive Adventure/Certification Trip

When: Mar 23, 2024
From 9:00 am to 6:00 pm
Where: Blue Grotto/Devils Den - Williston Florida

Come and join us on this amazing Dive Adventure!!!

On Saturday, we will visit Blue Grotto which is the largest clear water cavern located in the heart of freshwater spring country. Blue Grotto lets you dive down to a depth of 100 feet in crystal clear (year-round 72-degree water temperature) while always being able to see the surface so no special certification is needed to dive here. You can experience this dive location with only an open water diver certification because Blue Grotto is the safest cavern dive in the area which makes it a thrilling and fun dive for all levels of diving experience. Blue Grotto is located in Williston, Florida between Gainesville and Ocala.

On Sunday, we will visit Devil’s Den. This spring dates back to prehistoric times and on cold winter mornings you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the chimney opening. Thus, the early settlers gave it the name Devil's Den. With crystal clear water, ancient rock formations, stalactites, fossil beds that date back 33 million years, and much more. You’re guaranteed to leave with memories that will last a lifetime! The spring has a 120 ft. surface diameter and a mushroom shape below the surface. The maximum depth is 54ft and the water is 72 degrees year-round. Devil’s Den is located in Williston, Florida between Gainesville and Ocala.

*Students - During the open water certification trip you will complete your open water check out dives for the diver level you are completing. You will be demonstrating the skills that you learned during your confined water training to your instructor. There will not be any skills demonstrations done by your instructor at this time. In the open water setting the student will have to demonstrate that they have mastered each of the skills completely. The skills will be done in water to deep to stand (15’ – 60’ deep) depending on which level you are training for.

*As always, certified fun divers are always welcome on our certification trips
