Troy Springs State Park in Brandford, Florida

Troy Springs State Park was next! This 70-foot deep, first magnitude spring offers swimming, snorkeling, and diving. From the spring it’s just a short swim to the Suwannee River! The ever curving flow of Little River Spring and its run to the Suwannee is just beautiful. Below the spring’s surface you can stand and see directly into the cavern entrance! Wow, wish I knew scuba diving!!!

Ichetucknee Springs in Fort White, Florida

Ichetucknee Springs State Park was our last stop today. With this spring, it’s the cave system that starts 40 feet below the surface. This underwater cave system has been measured at nearly 600 feet of twisting passages. Also, this park’s biggest draw is tubing the clear, spring fed waters of the Ichetucknee River.
