Florida Freediving

All Experience Levels
Holiday Inn Express Alachua
February 27 - March 1, 2020

North Florida has the largest concentration of freshwater springs in the world! With no waves, no current, interesting topography and unlimited visibility, these dive sites are a freediver’s playground. Complete certification requirements in a comfortable and beautiful setting or safely develop your skills to go deeper if you are an experienced freediver. Come learn about springs formation, ecology, and conservation while exploring a minimum of 4-5 unique sites with depths between 35 and 70ft. In the winter, we may be lucky enough to encounter a manatee or two!

The Holiday Inn in Alachua is a new hotel centrally located between the Gainesville airport and all of our diving destinations. The hotel features large comfortable rooms, breakfast and a pool, and it is walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants.
