  1. 1. North Central FloridaDon’t become the next cave diving accident statistic! Stay well within your training and experience level. Diving in overhead environments, such as caverns and caves, is an extremely hazardous activity. Every site on this map has been the scene of multiple diver fatalities. Ninety percent of these fatalities involve divers with no formal training in cavern or cave diving. Dive Site Map There are only four sites on this map—Ginnie Spring, Devil’s Den, Blue Grotto Produced by The Cave Diving Website • http://www.cavediving.com/ and Paradise Spring—where experts consider it acceptable for divers who lack formal Cavern or Cave Diver training to enter the water with dive lights and explore underwater caverns. Even at these sites, it is important divers keep the cavern entrance clearly in view at all times. At any site other than these four, divers who lack Cavern or Cave Diver certifica- tion should not enter the water with dive lights. Doing so will help prevent them from accidentally going where they may not be able to find their way out. Several sites rigidly enforce a No Lights rule to help keep divers safe. For more information on exploring underwater caverns and caves as safely as possible, visit The Cave Diving Website at http://www.cavediving.com/ May KeyMadison Area Number Madison Blue Spring (850) 971-2880 1Luraville Area Telford Spring/Sink; Eldorado Chasm 2 Waterhole III 3 Peacock I 3 Peacock II 3 Peacock III 3 Olsen Sink 3 Orange Grove Sink 3 Cow Spring 4 Royal Spring 5Branford Area Troy Spring 6 Little River Spring 7Ginnie Springs Resort Ginnie Spring (904) 454-2202 8 Devils Eye and Ear (904) 454-2202 8Manatee Springs State Park Manatee Spring 9 Catfish Hotel 9 Freidman Sink 9Williston Area Devil’s Den (352) 528-3344 10 Blue Grotto (352) 528-5770 11Ocala Area Paradise Spring (352) 368-5746 12 © 1997–2000, Harry Averill • All Rights Reserved • v.00.06.06
