Travel Tips for High Springs

High Springs offers quaint...

by SnowAngel

High Springs offers quaint antique shops, novelty shops and awesome hospitality. But more than that, High Springs and the surrounding areas offer a lot of natural springs. You absolutely must visit one if not all of these springs when you come to this small town. Watching my daughter dive as deep as she could go into the crystal water at Blue Springs and never reaching the bottom.... Awe... the beauty of nature!

Packing List

by SnowAngel

The springs are great for diving. Bring masks and snorkels and 'swim shoes' that will protect your feet from the rocks. Also, if your camping make sure you pack extra towels and at least minor rain gear. You might consider bringing a first aid kit if you are camping and try and get a snake bite kit to add to it... it's just precautionary but you never know when you might need it. Bring lots of mosquito repellant. If you enjoy eating out at the picnic table, it's advisable to bring either a canopy which can be placed over your dining area or, you'll be eating in your tent an aweful lot and cooking in the rain. TIP: July and August are the hottest months in Florida and camping can be down right miserable. For extra comfort bring a battery operated fan or get and electrical site and hook up an electrical cooling device.

Cave Diving!

by dracko

Cave diving is perhaps the biggest attraction of High Springs. It is close to some of the finest divable cave systems in the world, and cave divers flock to it. Of course, there are other cave systems, both in Florida and elsewhere in the world, but High Springs has the distinction of being relatively close to quite a few of them.

Ginnie Springs

by dracko

Ginnie Springs - Ginnie Springs is a recreational area/watering hole and also an entrance to the Ginnie underwater cave system. There are several springs that flow out of the ground and into the nearby Santa Fe river. This makes the place very popular for tubing along the river and generally horsing around in the fresh clear water of the springs. The springs - Ginnie Spring, Devil's Ear and Devil's Eye, and Little Devil, are also entrances to the vast underwater cave systems. A word of caution - DO NOT enter the underwater caves, or even the caverns that are the entrances to them, unless you are trained for it. Cave diving is one of the most dangerous types of scuba diving and requires very extensive training, equipment, and experience to even be attempted. WAY too many untrained divers have met an untimely death by going beyond their limits - we don't need anymore. But if horsing around in the water is all you're after, Ginnie is a great place to be. They do charge admission, but it's a fun place. You can camp there, there's a store that will supply you with everything from rental tubes and canoes to air fills and scuba gear, and the facilities tend to be maintained fairly well.

Ginnie Springs - Part II

by dracko

Water in Ginnie Springs is unbelievably clear - giving rise to the place's name Ginnie - as in Gin-clear water. Visibility is well in excess of 100ft. Water tends to be on the cooler side for swimming, low 70-75F, but when it's 90F+ degrees outside, cool water is just the ticket!
