From Divertissimo: Ginnie, peacock, Orange, Manatee, in central Florida

Ginnie Springs would be nice as long as we keep it to a cavern dive (not cave certified).
I’ll let you know in a day or so, since I’ll be in SC for Xmas and just getting back around the 27th.

For those that don’t know, Paradise Springs is a privately owned property and they are a cash only operation. The entry fee is $30 and some gear is available for rent too. It’s best to have everything you need including a light however.

I should be at Paradise about 8:30 and there may be another 2 divers as well. Dress warm as the air temp will be i the mid 30s. Water will feel good though!
