The day after the Hernando Beach Regatta Steve Barton took us to Buford Sink for a scuba dive in the jungle. Located within Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area in Hernando County we went down to about 85′ but the sink slants off to 165′ The link, below describes the link in detail…
To access the sink we had to lug our gear on foot down a about a mile long trail. The last 100 yards of the trail is swamp so with dive tanks and all we had to plod from through most of us slipping into the knee deep and beyond muck.
Diving down into the cavern was an incredible experience. If this was the whole purpose of our trip to Hernando Beach we all agreed it would of been worth it. Technically it’s probably a cave dive but it wasn’t any more dangerous than a typical ocean dive.
In the end we were so grateful for the adventure Steve guided us on.
Most of the pictures below are of the trek to the sink. Though we do have some video at the end.
