  • Devil’s Den Spring is a 100% privately owned scuba diving facility.

    It’s always been privately owned, and has never been public land. They have a specific set of rules, and they’re strictly enforced.

    Do yourself a giant favor, and read all of the rules before you go. It’s best to avoid any surprises that might ruin your trip!

    Read the rules before you go! If you have any questions, it’s always a great idea to call and ask, or email! Here are some of the main rules to be aware of:

  • Reservations are now required. There is a maximum number of people allowed in the spring at one time.
  • You’re not allowed to JUST swim. You must SNORKEL, and use snorkel gear, including: mask, fins and snorkel.
  • Snorkel rental from Devil’s Den, is only for 2 hours.
  • Dogs are not allowed, except for service animals.
  • Drones are not allowed.
  • Floats are not allowed in the spring!
  • Children are only allowed if they are 6 or older. Kids must be extremely good swimmers because the water is deep and cold!
  • Are there alligators in Devil’s Den?

    There are not any sharks or alligators in Devil’s Den. The only wildlife inside Devil’s Den are fish and turtles.

    Although the spring is connected to the Florida aquifer and other springs via an underground cave system, there is no way for alligators to enter the spring via the tunnels.

    And, the water in Devil’s Den Spring is fresh spring water, so you don’t have to worry about sharks.

    These questions seem ridiculous, but they’re included in the FAQ on the spring’s official website, so I guess they get asked!
