What is Vortex Spring?

Created by Doc & Ruth Dockery, Vortex Spring is home to the Red & White "Diver Down" Flag and is one of the largest diving facilities in the state of Florida.

Vortex Spring is recognized as one of the best and safest diving resorts in the country. This 420 acre playground produces approximately 28 million gallons of crystal "gin" clear water daily at a year round temperature of 68 degrees.

Our property is packed with experiences for the entire family whether it be scuba diving with our trained and certified instructors, exploring our nature trails, or just taking a dip in the spring.

A mecca for diving, snorkeling, and swimming enthusiast alike. If you love the water this is the place for you.
