11/18/2007 John from Fort McCoy (Avg: 3.48 Review) - Ocala Star Banner ( had an article today that said this place is for sale. Water bottlers are looking at it, someone with the big bucks needs to save it.

09/28/2007 Dave K (Avg: 3.42 Review) - One of the most interesting spring dives. Must have lights, and heed the Grim Reaper sign around 100 feet. Loaded with fossils in an enormous cavern. Go during the week and have your buoyancy skills in good order to keep from stirring up the bottom silt.

08/14/2007 John from Fort McCoy (Avg: 2.98 Review) - Here are the correct directions: From Ocala go South on US 27/301/441 until the road split at SE 80th ST. There is a Sheriff's Dept Sub-station in the middle of the road. Continue until the road goes back together and do a U-turn at the next crossover and go back North. You will see the Paradise Springs mailbox on the right side. Turn right and follow the dirt drive back to the house/office. If you don't have a buddy and are in the area I am available to dive.

03/13/2006 Bob Bost (Avg: 2.65 Review) - This is one of my favorite cavern dives. The entire cavern is covered in fossils. It is impossible to not see any. I highly recommend this to anyone who is overhead trained.
