What is Ginnie Springs?

Ginnie Springs is an oasis for those who love the water. Located about an hour away from Ocala, it’s only a short trip away from your Ocala hotel. It’s a natural spot that has drawn so many visitors that it’s become a must-see attraction.

At Ginnie, there are seven different springs. The water is as clear as it gets. No matter how warm it is outside, the temperature of the water is always 72 degrees. This makes it a perfect place to cool off in the warm summers.

While visiting, you can enjoy some watersports. You can rent a paddleboard, canoe, or kayak. If you’re more interested in an energy-free way to relax, you can rent an innertube and float down the waterway.

Other people choose to enjoy the springs with an underwater view. You can snorkel or dive in the cool water. Even Jacques Cousteau commented on the clarity of the springs.

Regardless of the time of year, you can find divers in the springs. You can strap on a tank and get in to explore the unique fish and other animals of the oasis.
