Visit one of North America's most prehistoric places, Devil's Den -- an underground spring inside a dry cave in central Florida. The remains of many extinct animals from the Pleistocene Age (2 million - 10,000 years ago) were discovered at Devil's Den, including the bones of early man, dating back to 7,500 B.C.

The pleasant year-around temperature of 72 degrees in the Den allows comfortable diving, winter or summer. On cold winter mornings you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the cave's chimney. Hence, the early settlers called the place Devil's Den.

You'll find open water and cavern diving at its best & will be fascinated by the rock formations with stalactites and 33 million year old fossil beds, truly a natural wonder. On a cold winter morning you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the chimney. Thus, the early settlers gave the name Devil's Den.

Crystal clear water, year round 72 degree temperatures, ancient rock formations with stalactites, fossil beds, and much more. Devil's Den is truly a natural wonder. Bring the family and enjoy a day of fun and relaxation at Devil's Den.

All divers must be Open Water certified, sign release, have proper training, and follow rules and regulations. For more information, visit: 


Devil's Den is located just west of Williston on Alternate US 27. Take I-75 exit 74 if you're going south or exit 70 if traveling north. Go west on Hwy 121 or Hwy 27 respectively. Once you get to downtown Williston (watch for speed traps) head west on Alternate Hwy 27. The road to Devil's Den will be about two miles past the shopping center (near the town water tower) on the right. Just look for the Devil's Den sign on the highway. Follow the road for about 3/4 of a mile and look for the entrance on the left after a series of curves.
