Devil’s Den Springs (Devils Den) - Williston FL

Devil’s Den Springs (Devils Den) is a fresh water dive site, located at 5390 NE 180th Ave, Williston, FL 32696. This dive site has an average rating of 4.00 out of 5 from 201 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 51-60ft/16-18m. The average visibility is 91-100ft/28-30m. This dive site provides bathrooms and airfills. Training platforms are available.

Devils Den is a great cavern dive near central Florida. Be careful on the steps as you descend into the mouth of Devils Den. And watch your head as you go under the rocks. You’ll see some large catfish that are apparently trapped in the cavern (or maybe they know a secret way out). While underwater, spend time looking up at the light coming through the cavern and into the water. Bring a couple lights, it’s not really a cave...but there are some spots that get dark since it can become pretty enclosed. If you don’t like tight spaces, try to avoid going through some of the small openings. I never had to take off my gear to push through, but I didn’t have to wiggle my way through some spots.

Don’t go beyond the bars or signs underwater, they’re there for a reason. Checkout the neat bones and other stuff lying on the floor in some spots...this place really does seem pre-historic.

There are training platforms to use and a pool on site as well. The cabins on site are also very nice and cozy (with kitchens and bathrooms).

I’m looking to dive DD tomorrow, 10/2 at 2pm while my wife snorkels. Anyone available to join?

I just messaged you. Check your mail.

A mile down the road is Blue Grotto, and we allow snorkeling on the weekends when with a diver. Being a weekend, you should have no problem finding a buddy to tagalong with. I work in the office. Ask for Sandy.

This was a lot better than I expected. It was beautiful after walking down the stairs. It resembles a Mexican cenote up top, and has some pretty cool mini cave-like swim throughs in the cavern zone. There are a lot of snorkelers up top, but you don’t notice them at all as a diver, and they don’t silt anything up anyway. Visibility was medium for me due to high traffic by the afternoon on a weekend. Staff was great. I recommend this dive site, especially if you can do it and blue grotto, across the street, on the same day.

This is where I did my check out dives. I was scared in that hole. But after I was finished, it was all cool. Very cool place. Thank you my people. Native Americans!

DD has cool rock formations with light opportunities for diving in overhead environments, as well as a catfish.

Looking for a dive buddy on 12 Sept. I want to dive at Blue Grotto & Devils Den. Never been to these locations. Possibly do multiple dives at each. Also planning to dive at Ginnie Springs on the 11th but I can switch dates and locations if anyone is interested.
SantaFeSandy - 8/23/2019 8:19 PM
I sent you a friend request. I could dive Blue Grotto with you on Wednesday September 11.
Rollercoaster - 8/23/2019 10:39 PM
Thanks SantaFeSandy! That would be awesome. I am a novice diver, hope that is ok with you. Hoping to lock in buddies at Devils Den and up at Ginnie Springs as well. What time could you dive?

Looking for dive buddies for 8/11/19 or weekend of 8/24 Devil’s den Williston Florida

If you can’t find a buddy, be sure to call Blue Grotto as they offer “rent a buddy” services. Tell them Sandy sent you.

This is one of my favorite places to go dive for the day. Dive slow and look harder. Lots of stuff to see. Also don’t forget the lower area. Lots of little places around the bottom.

Open water for the family in 1995. Cold and rainy outside but great inside. More fun in a dry suit unless you like cold water in your wet suit. Sherry, Nikki and I passed and had a great time.

Beautiful caverns, beautiful entry, good visibility. Long steps to the entry point, but the beauty is distracting enough.

I liked this site. Pretty cool to climb through the underwater rock. Not much fish though.

While there’s not a great deal to see at Devil’s Den, it’s a beautiful location and a good place to hone your skills.

I did not get to do any of the swim-throughs while I was there. I was on a schedule and couldn’t stick around for the second dive of the day with the group I was diving with. However, that will be on my short list if I make it back to Devil’s Den.

Dove this place on a vacation to Florida in December 2016. Great place, very cool going down into the spring. Only got one dive in but will be back next time I’m in the area.
