Florida Caves

Diving in the clear freshwater at north Florida always has been on our diving bucket list. Typically, these springs are popular with cave and technical divers, so when you hear about a place that was described by Jacques Cousteau as having “visibility forever”, you have to get your wetsuit out and head underwater.

This place is known as a popular tech diving location, with miles of caves and caverns underground to explore.

The most representative is the devil’s ear; a confluence of crystal clear spring water and the tannin stained Santa Fe River create a “bloody effect.”

The USS Oriskany (CV/CVA-34) also known as “The Great Carrier Reef” is a 904ft long US Navy aircraft carrier. The Oriskany saw significant combat service in both the Korean and Viet Nam wars. She was intentionally sank as an artificial reef on May 17, 2006. This wreck is the world’s largest intentionally-created artificial reef. Nicknamed “The Mighty O”, the USS Oriskany is a world-class dive for recreational and technical divers alike. She rests in 212 ft of water with her upper sections settled at 84 ft. The wreck is home to a wide variety of marine life including small tropical fish such as blennies, damselfish and angelfish and large game fish such as snapper, grouper and massive amberjack. Pelagic fish species can sometimes be spotted and even whale sharks and manta rays have been spotted cruising around the tower of the carrier. Oriskany is sometimes a challenging dive due to the potential for strong currents at the site. It is truly an awe-inspiring site for advanced divers.

We will have the opportunity to visit the DIVE RITE facilities in Florida!
