Ginnie Springs March 1st-8th, 2020

Ginnie Springs has been commonly described as “visibility forever”. This is no exaggeration – these inland fresh water springs of northern Florida certainly do not disappoint, which is why we’ve returned every year since 1999.


Join the Columbus Scuba family for our annual Ginnie Springs Florida trip. We will be camping from Sunday (March 1st) through Saturday, March 7th. Stay for a portion of the trip, or the entire week. Throughout the week we will dive four different dive sites (Ginnie Springs, Blue Grotto, Devil’s Den & Paradise Springs). We will be offering a variety of different courses while on the trip, such as: Open Water Check Out Dives (the final portion to an Open Water Certification), Advanced Open Water, Cavern Diver and Deep Diver (you must have Advanced Open Water to do Deep or Cavern).
