We took our young children (10 and 11) to the Blue Grotto Dive Resort for their check-out dives. Kevin, the instructor and gentleman who runs the Stellina Dive School on site, couldn't have been a better instructor for our children to complete their dive certification. He was kind but thorough and extremely personable. It was like visiting an old friend.... More

This was our second trip to the renovated Blue Grotto and it is still wonderful. The facilities are still in great shape, everyone is very friendly and helpful, and the spring is still beautiful. I love everything about Blue Grotto and the next time we are in Florida, we will make this a destination again.

This is our second visit under the new owners. It has been improved and maintained and is just the nicest place of it's kind. The room we rented for two nights may have been the same one we had 2 years ago. It still looks new. The whole place is extremely clean, the rental gear is in good condition, the... More

Spent the day diving here, the scuba rental staff were friendly especially the young guy working the rental shack with the golf cart. Nice bathroom setup. We enjoyed the dives and exploring the dive bell. Loved the local mascot turtle Virgil!

Did Saturday scuba cert course here w my 2 teenagers and instructor. Half time is spent in pool other half is spent in grotto. Much care was given to the training. Unfortunately only one of my kids was able to complete the course because the youngest was coming off of a cold and having a difficult time clearing his ears

Have dove here twice both were nice dives, but show up early. The visibility is fantastic until the classes really start rolling through. The silt layer is thick and it doesn't take much to stir it up. Overall a fun dive if you are certified to go to the lower cavern. The operation with the new owners is amazing, very... More

This well maintained dive resort is something quite different from most diving holes in Florida. We spent the night in a well kept 2 bedroom cabin. It was nothing luxurious but it was clean and met our needs. It had a large fire ring outside and it was an awesome night under the stars. The diving was great. It does... More

We arrived at 2 pm on Thanksgiving Day and had the Grotto to ourselves. Kurt had us watch an orientation video while he got our tanks ready. We chose to set up our gear down on the large deck near the Grotto as no one else was around. There is bench seating with straps for tanks to accommodate a lot... More
