This is a great place but please be aware it cant really be viewed without snorkelling or scuba diving. If you won't jump in, save yourself a trip. All gear can be hired there. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

OK, the place is IMPRESSIVEEEEE!! Very, very beautiful But..... i consider to be a rip off to pay 30$ for a limited time at the site and besides there is nothing else to do. For a family of 3 paying 90$ for about 1.1/2 hours...More

Loved snorkeling in the cave. Wear a wetsuit. It is colder than expected. There are fish, turtles and stalactites. One of the many magical places in Florida. We are in an RV. The sites have Emus and goats surrounding the property. Wonderful experience.

My adult daughter and I camped and snorkeled here last week and really enjoyed everything. The staff was wonderful and very friendly. I am a serious photographer and I was able to get some really good shots. Well worth your time.

No worries. Alligators prefer murkier and warmer water. This water is far too cold and because the springs are so clear, they would do lousy at hunting prey so not their thing. :)
