It's in Ocala National Forest - about 65 miles North. It's 72F like all the other springs. Max depth is about 27Ft

Great place to practice doubles / shooting a bag. or any other skills, etc.
It's a federal park, so you can solo dive there

It's a Florida Softshell (Apalone ferox) - was about 4-5feet way back in a cave

Very cool. I just bought my first underwater camera 6 months or so ago, a Reef Master mini. I have not gotten any very good pictures though yet. Do have external flashes on your camera or are you able to take such nice shots without them.

The clairty and shallow depths of the Florida springs don't really require a strobe. All images were taken with no flash or the cameras built in flash.

Very cool, I guess I just need more practice. Thanks for the pics, they are great.
