    I like Blue Springs. It's a very different dive, and some people get bored, but I enjoy it quite a bit. It's unlike any other spring in the area (for those who haven't been there, it's a fissure in the ground that drops 70 feet, and then bends at a 45 degree angle to continue into cavern/cave.

    I would definitely include the Duane (Key Largo) and the Mexican Pride (St. Pete's) in that top 10...hard to beat Molasses/French Reefs on a good day in the Keys...Hole in the Wall in Jupiter can be very spectacular.

    Cheers.

    People should probably be more specific when they say Blue Spring... thats like the most common spring name in existance. Within the time it took to type this post, I thought of 7 of them... and there are more.

    I won't put dives in order but here's some of the best that I've dove.

    Empire Mica (Panama City), The Eagle (Islamorada), The Anna (Jacksonville), Huggins Freighter (Jacksonvile), Looe Key (Big Pine Key), Spiegel Grove (Key Largo), Duane and Bibb (Islamorada), Clayton's Hollar Ledges (Jacksonville).

    I'm probably leaving a few off but oh well.
