Four underwater passages extend from the pool under the opening, from 5 feet (1.5 m) to 90 feet (27 m) under the surface of the water. The passage called room 3, 70 feet (21 m) under water, comprised human and animal remains and artifacts. The animal remains, which appeared to be connected with the human remains and artifacts, had been from extinct (Pleistocene) species, such as mastodons, ground sloths, camels, horses, dire wolves, bog lemmings, Florida spectacled bears, saber-toothed cats, along with peccaries. The remains are dated to approximately 7,500 BC. This incredible wonder is really a natural pool which has been transformed to a scuba diving website and world class tourist attraction. Dubbed”Devil’s Den“this natural phenomenon called a Karst Window is really a cave in which the roof on a subterranean river has collapsed, exposing the water to the open surface. This underground spring resides deep inside a dry cave at the gulf town of Williston Florida. On cold winter evenings you can see steam, like smoke rising from the chimney opening of the cave – thus the early settlers dubbed the place the”Devil’s Den“. This scuba diving and snorkeling center has something to offer everyone, while the owners don’t allow swim. With crystal clear water, year round incredible fossils rock formations, 72 degree water temperatures and depths of up to 90 feet – it’s no wonder that this pool has been a favorite with scuba divers for years!
