Ginnie Springs

Perhaps the most popular of Florida’s natural springs, Ginnie Springs attracts so many tourists for many reasons. A big draw? It’s also one of the best Florida snorkeling spots!

48 minutes northwest of Gainesville, you’ll find a set of seven springs to explore. Open from sunrise to sunset, you can easily spend the entire day snorkeling. If you are staying at the campground, you’ll have access to the springs 24/7.

When you snorkel at Ginnie Springs, you’ll see many species of wildlife through the clear blue waters! Look out for large gar, mullet, catfish, turtles, and bass!

You are welcome to bring your own snorkeling equipment, but if you need to rent gear, never fear! Ginnie Springs Outdoors can rent you a mask, snorkel, and fins for only $12!

Because Ginnie Springs can become incredibly crowded, we recommend you visit during the off-season or on a weekday! Generally, if you do so, you’ll have the entire park to yourself!
