View Full Version : Kayak diving in North/Central Florida

Rivers ... Santa Fe, Rainbow River, etc ... has anyone dived from their kayak in this area? If so, what kind of kayak did you use? I live in Gainesville and I'm wanting to use my kayak and gear to do more diving locally. Unfortunately, I don't have a sit-on-top but I'm trying to brainstorm how to make my sea kayak work out for this. Thanks for any input! Here's a bad pic of my kayak ...

Rainbow River has some areas you can easily tie off your boat to a tree from. We dove off a boat, but we towed a canoe to hold our dry box just in case anything happened, worked out fine

Sorry I can't be of more help, it seemed everyone else in kayaks/canoes were fishing.. but were VERY aware and respectful of the divers in the area
