This well maintained dive resort is something quite different from most diving holes in Florida. We spent the night in a well kept 2 bedroom cabin. It was nothing luxurious but it was clean and met our needs. It had a large fire ring outside and it was an awesome night under the stars. The diving was great. It does... More

We arrived at 2 pm on Thanksgiving Day and had the Grotto to ourselves. Kurt had us watch an orientation video while he got our tanks ready. We chose to set up our gear down on the large deck near the Grotto as no one else was around. There is bench seating with straps for tanks to accommodate a lot... More

This was a great place. I enjoyed it so much. It was a clean run operation and was a great cave dive. Worth the trip.

Blue Grotto is great for newbies to expert cave divers. Virgil the turtle was fun to feed. Grounds are kept very nice. Friendly staff.

I was worried it would be excessively busy but on a Wednesday afternoon in October we had the place to ourselves. There was only one other couple utilizing the awesome lodging facilities so it was eerily spectacular. We did an afternoon familiarization dive then a night dive. The night dive is a must do but requires special arrangements. They also... More

Everything you need for a unique freshwater dive experience. The friendly soft shell turtle is almost annoyingly affectionate. Made it difficult to get some gear on. But she soon decided to nap after we made our descent. Surprisingly overhead of an environment for a sinkhole, but made for a bit more excitement compared to a place like Hospital Hole or... More

Stayes in cabin onsite And found it to be well kept and clean price is reasonable. The spring is clear and caters to cavern as well as cave divers.Submerged platforms are provided for training and for practicing skills. Area is clean and restrooms/ showers/ changing facilities are clean and well maintained.

My lady and I drove here directly after Devil's Den and were once again very happy and in Awe of its beauty. Another must see. This place is exactly the opposite of Devil's Den. It isn't that fun for snorkeling but the dive is truly AMAZING!!! You must dive the full depth and make sure to turn off your dive... More

I have done scuba diving at a lot of fresh water locations and this place has the best facilities. The springs itself is a little small but is can accommodate quite a bit of divers. I've been bringing students here for a few times for open water and advanced. The viz is excellent (all the way across, about 100 ft)... More

For instructors it's great place to teach a variety of SCUBA classes. The improvements made by the new owners are impressive. They've added cabins, a training pool and a classroom. The bathroom/shower facility is brand new with indoor and outdoor showers. The pavilions are always clean and can be reserved in advance. They key is to get there early and... More
