Orange Grove is an offset sinkhole of the vast submerged cave system located underground in Peacock Springs State Park.
Park located near Luraville, which is in about 15 minutes of driving south-west from Live Oak, FL. Open water scuba diving in this park is only limited to this sinkhole. Thru years rules for open water diving were changing and it is better to check it out before going there http://www.floridastateparks.org/peac...
The cavern is safe for open water diver bottoms at 70', trained cavern divers can go down to 130' and cave continues to 180' where it becomes dangerous even for new certified cave divers. Visibility is affected by flooding seasons in Suwannee river but most of the year a water is clear with 100'+ vizibility.
To take full advantage of diving in this park divers must be cave certified which opens access to 2-3 more entrances and cave system with 9 karst features - sinkholes and springs located in park and opened to visitors. There are few cave systems in this park however only 2 of them are opened for diving.
The cave is safe with most routes average depth 50-60 ffw. Guidelines are well maintained, there are good parking spots, restrooms, changing rooms, few nature trails, boardwalks and steps to water. Air fill stations and dive shops are in Luraville 3 minutes away.
