SCUBA Diving Vortex
The spring basin is 50 feet deep at the mouth of the cavern. Surface lit during the day and inhabited by Koi, Gar, Catfish, American Eels, Redhorse Suckers, Blue Gill, and Bass to name a few. These will surely be your constant companions, and are tame enough to eat right out of your hand, an underwater photographers dream. The cavern continues another one hundred yards, to a depth of 115 feet at the cave system security gate. The white sand bottom and shimmering air pockets make for a breathtaking experience!
SCUBA and Free Diving in all aspects is a very dangerous sport. You must be properly trained and equipped before you attempt. If interested in this awsome adventure that awaits please see our diving classes section or contact us for more details.
