Narcosis, The Great White Seen at Ginnie Springs

**** FLASH ***** Narcosis the Great White discovered at Ginnie Springs.

Would you like to dive Silver Springs?

For a few years at the end of the Eisenhower administration Hollywood legend Lloyd Bridges used the once gin-clear output of Silver Springs as the set for a TV show based on a scuba diver.
