It forms a pool that flows across a shaft of limestone and finally opens into a giant cave. You can see the opening of the Blue Hole standing from the shore. The sight is delightful and spectacular when you watch the transparent blue water shining in the sunlight. The striking beauty encompasses tranquillity with nature at its best.
Ichetucknee Blue Hole in Florida is known as the Jug Spring by the adventure-stricken community of cave divers. The waters of this spring along with a few others feed the Ichetucknee River. The Blue Hole pumps around 67 million gallons of water daily. And, that is why you are being pushed back when you try to swim across the boil. The deep cyan and clear waters are home to a diversified and unequivocal marine life.
