Devil's Den is a very interesting site. There is an on-site dive shop that caters to open water and cavern diving. Dive fees are expensive at $35/day, but worth it once if you are new to the area. The main attraction is Devil's Den which is a sinkhole that has fallen in. The water level is probably 30 ft below the ground. So to enter the water, you descend a steep set of steps into the ground. The water level is technically in open water, since the cavern room is air-filled. You can look up from the water and see the hole in the ceiling where the floor fell in. A small water fall drips over the side down into the water.

The visibility is usually 60+ feet until the open water divers get in there and kick things up. You can see fish and swim through piles of rock boulders. The access points to the cave system have been grated off. So there is no cave diving here. Depths are about 60 ft in the deepest parts.

Another attraction at this site is a manmade small lake with a boat or two sunk in the bottom. It is extremely silty and visibility is usually 10 ft or less. Camping is allowed on site. And this trip is great in conjunction with Blue Grotto which is nearby.
