Santa Fe River

santa-fe-river-dive-1

During the drier summer months, visibility in the Santa Fe River can reach as much as 30 to 40 feet or more. When it does, river diving becomes popular. Many divers like to enter the water at the Devil Spring system and drift dive the nearly 1,000 feet to Ginnie Spring. Along the way, they may see pleistocene-era fossils from giant ground sloths and other prehistoric mammals.  Due to overhead boat traffic, state law requires that you tow a float and flag while diving in the river. These are available from Ginnie’s rental department.
