Swimming

Wacissa River
TYPE River/Spring
DESCRIPTION This description from a fan, “The water is crystal clear since it is fed by a number of incredible, beautiful springs. Since it’s maintained by the County Government pretty much any thing goes and there are no fees or supervision. You can swim, snorkel, fish, boat, scuba dive, whatever. There is a diving platform and a rope swing. Also a boat landing but the water depth is suitable for only small boats, canoes and kayaks. The water temperature is 68 degrees year round. Anyway, this place blows away most of the other places you have listed under Florida as far as accessibility, natural beauty and water quality are concerned.”

WEB SITE INFORMATION.

Another fan says:” I have to agree with the description of the Wacissa swimming hole. It is really beautiful and a pretty safe clothing-optional bet if you go after dark on a weekday. In fact, I have been at least a half-dozen times (all but one clothed!) and have only seen a few people. Additionally, if you go after dark, you should obviously bring a flashlight, it is pitch dark.”
