if you haven’t been, or it’s been awhile, let’s get a group together and go diving. I went with 3 buddies on a Sunday in August and we had the place to our selfs.

Enjoyed it a lot and want to go again. You do need lights as it gets dark in the corners, but it’s not considered caves.
Air fills available on site as well as some gear rentals.

Opens at 8am, I plan to get there at 8 and try to get 3 dives.
Cost is $30

Funny how so many divers read your posting, but don’t respond. I’m looking at a 16 hour drive just to get to Florida. Then 4 more hours to get to Paradise Springs. We willl connect via phone before the 18th! See ya, Brian

I’ll be letting him use one of mine, and he will need a fill.

Sorry. What I meant to ask is if the owner at Paradise Springs does fills or is it only tank rentals?

Doug just called they do both and at same price $8 she said.
Her husband does the fills so if he’s not there you can rent a full tank for $8.
Which if I remember right last time their rental tanks had 3300-3400 in them. So if you own a tank now, you may be best to rent instead of them stressing your tank with a overfill.

I have a steel, so I’m not worried about it too much.

How many people are going? Might bring my Weber q grill and we can make a picnic out of it too. Just all hanging out in Mr. Paradise’s back yard. Ha-ha.

Picnic and diving, can’t get much better than that. I’ll bring something to add to the fun (food).
