ماذا ستفعل

Experience floridas natural diversity in ways most visitors could never imagine. The state has hundreds of natural freshwater springs with constant 72° water temperature. They are perfect for photography, scuba diving, freediving, snorkeling. This experience will focus on the snorkeling aspect. We will visit 3 springs over the course of the day, all open to the public but relatively unknown to most. At each spring we will have time to snorkel, discuss the cultural history of the region and the unique geology that led to their creation. I will show you some hidden wonders at each site, unique to that spring and often unadvertised. We will have a picnic lunch along the way, at one of the springs so be sure to bring something suitable to keep your body fueled for adventure. I will point out local flora and fauna as we encounter it, as well as provide whatever knowledge I can share about the ecosystems and our impacts on them as we are enjoying on the way.

Im a disabled combat vet who works at a canoe and kayak rental agency on the Santa Fe River. I'm passionate about the area's natural wonders. I've studied biology and volunteered with scientists to learn more. I moved to this area in order to be in closer proximity to the areas beautiful, natural freshwater springs. My free time is spent exploring them, learning about them, and seeking out new springs. I'm an avid hiker, canoeist, and freediver. I love to share my knowledge and passions. I also work to help promote conservation efforts and promote responsible use of our resources.

أين ستكون

Every spring is unique. For snorkeling I have selected 3 springs in relatively close proximity to each other and provide some very unique opportunities for those who have never experienced Karst topography in person. The water is clear, constantly 72, and abundant with flora and fauna, but SAFE to swim in. Some of these springs are over 70 ft deep and clear completely to the bottom.

Doug did a great job with the tour. His passion about the springs makes this a very special tour. We got a chance to spring hop thru multiple springs most of them are not accessible unless you have a good guide. As a local to Gainesville Doug also had great recommendations for other sink holes and when it would be best to return to the springs.

Spring Into Natural Florida Adventure – With Doug!   My husband and I found Doug’s tour of some of the most iconic freshwater springs in the Southeast on Air BnB. It was an experience that was both high-adventure and high entertainment as we were learning about the nature of massive underwater cave systems and formations while getting the chance to dive in and witness them first-hand. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the areas we were exploring (over six different incredible springs by day’s end). Doug’s a really cool guy and a talented free diver. He thoroughly impressed us with his free dive into the crystal-blue depths that we marveled at from the surface. We were thoroughly impressed with this experience, with the guide and the locations we explored. We highly recommend this excursion to anyone who has a curiosity of Florida’s natural wonders. We look forward to booking another one of Doug’s epic spring tours very soon!!!

Traveling through the Florida forest was very interesting and unusual, we learned a lot about the parks and spring that he showed us, and we definitely want to return because we did not have time to see much.

We had a group of 6 people. Ages ranged from 12 to 50. The river was high during our trip so Doug rearranged our trip so that we could see the clearest springs during our tour. Doug customized our tour with the kids in mind. We all had a great time. Doug is very knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the springs we visited. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are in the area . We would do this again and tour different springs!

I am so grateful I took this tour it was much more than visiting these amazing Springs (which I would have never been able to find myself!) but it was truly an experience and adventure! I felt safe with Doug, we met new friends and with Doug’s encouragement I faced my fear of swimming and heights!! Honestly this was an amazing experience! Thank you Doug!!!
