We’ll start our weekend with a full day of diving at either Blue Grotto or Ginnie Springs. We'll make the final choice when we decide how best to maximize your fun..
After the dives are done you’ll have the rest of the day free. You're near Gainesville and Ocala so lyo can pick a place to visit. Or just rest up and get ready for the next day.
Sunday will wrap up the dives. We try to do enough dives on Saturday so you can make Sunday a short day and head home early, or spend the entire day under water. Your choice.
