My wife and I dove Morrison Springs way back when, 1965 thru 1978. There were hardly any regulations and our equipment was as good as you made it. At this time there were very, very few octo rigs. We would make our own. At the time we were there, a third entrance was accessible to down to depths of about 120 to 135 feet. I went into it once. Total darkness and very spooky. It has since been sealed, I understand. Some of the Astronauts trained in the springs and attempted to train seals to carry supplies, cameras and such. This is one of the best and clearest springs in Florida. I highly recommend it, if nothing else but for the many, many freshwater eels that hang out of the limestone's holes down in the caverns. Yep, I am getting old, let's see, yep 62. Oh well, I still dive in my pool and at a clear lake here in Phoenix, AZ. Take care, be careful and be sure to go to Morrison Springs if at all possible.
