The average temperature of a Florida's Ponce de Leon Spring is 72 degrees year round which makes it excellent for scuba diving, cave diving, and snorkeling. This Spring is fed through Florida's natural underground aquifer (a river that runs beneath Florida) dumping millions of gallons of water daily. The limestone rock filters the water making it crystal clear.
