I was reconsidering after reading some of the negative reviews but after going, I can only surmise that the negative experiences are people who either try to do what you are told explicitly not to do or just some bad luck. The place is beautiful,...More

The cave is cool, you can't swim the the part of the spring that is above ground. The people that work in the office a very nice. the tent camping could use a little TLC. but for the price you really can't complain.

Would not recommend for anyone who regularly enjoys snorkeling. The cavern while pretty has nothing to see for snorkelers. It is well kept and preserved which is a tribute to the property managers but this is more of a swimming location rather than snorkeling.

This is a great place for scuba diving! Almost like diving in the caves, but much safer. The water is from a spring so it is 72* year round, very nice for a hot summer day.

I went to Devils Den to have a good time swimming in the spring. First of all, the wait was 2 hours to snorkel because of how busy the spring was. So I signed the waiver and put my name on the list to be...More

In a small Town in Florida the Earth shows off by allowing us to view its beauty. In a small opening called a Karst lies a cave of magic. Here you can view all its wonder and glory. We had taken a trip out there...More

We arrived early, thanks to many reviews, and nearly had the place to ourselves. We spent about 2 hours snorkeling with only a few other people. By lunchtime, many more divers and snorkelers had arrived. The staff was so courteous and friendly, they answered every...More

Its not attached to an above ground free flowing river. Its a sink hole/spring attached to Florida's aquifer.

Nope no gators here... While alligators do frequent MANY springs, those are typically rivers, and/or spring fed ponds & lakes where there tend to be more dark, secluded, murky spots.

Blue Springs in Orange City is amazing - especially in the winter with all the manatees.
