Rainbow River Drift Diving

On a recent family vacation I had a chance to go diving in central Florida.  I chose the Rainbow River because it was relatively shallow and I would not have dive buddies until I got on site.  I was also recommended to check out Devil’s Den.  The Rainbow River is easily accessed from K.P. Hole Park.  The Rainbow River Water Taxi can give you a ride upstream for tubing or in my case diving.  I rented gear from the friendly staff at the Port Hotel and Marina Dive Center.  Everything was well maintained and worked like a charm.

The dive itself is very relaxing and I have never been in more clear water.  My local pool seems lousy compared to the visibility on the crystal river.  There is a lot to see underwater and the GoPro video really does not do the dive justice.
