    Default Ginnie

    Anyone know conditions at Ginnie Springs? Are they open for diving? Hope everyone in the area came through the weather event well. Bill

    Called them? They have a lot of trees, so don't doubt they could have some damage.

    Called them and got a recorded message that the office is closed. Nothing on the web site, they may be busy. Bill

    Facebook just says they are closed today and will post reopening date after assessing conditions.

    EE posted a message on Facebook saying that Ginnie is closed until 26 Sept. They're apparently anticipating record-breaking peak floods on Thursday...(Floods in excess of 35' predicted for Fort White)

    Good luck Bill. I am reading Ginnie is closed until September 26th, with a major flooding level of 35.5ft. The last major flood for them in 1998 was 32.2, and that flooded out the whole basin -between Devils and Ginnie

    I remember a flood in the 70s when I parked at Ginnie, and waded to Devil's Eye. It was divable, but the viz was around 40'.
