Vortex Spring

Florida's premier inland dive resort is Vortex Spring. The spring produces 28 million gallons of crystal-clear water per day at a year-round temperature of 68 degrees F. Depths in the spring are perfect for open water divers and students. The bottom of the spring bowl is sandy with limestone near the vent. Vortex Spring is recognized as one of the best and safest dive training facilities in the country.

*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.
