Grotto Guide Orientaton Course

Making Reservations

Making reservations for the Grotto isn’t all that difficult. It only involves the sacrifice of a few barnyard animals and wearing sackcloth and ashes for alternate weeks during July. (We’re kidding, of course.)

In fact, the process is actually pretty easy.

15 Now can you make reservations to come to the Grotto?

To make reservations for your group you can:

  • Call us at (352) 368-7974.
  • E-mail us at
  • Use the reservation form on
Reservation Form

We suppose that, if you wanted to, you could even write us a letter. (Does anybody even do that any more?) Perhaps the best way is to use the reservation form on our website. It’s fast. It’s convenient … and it won’t even cost you the price of a phone call. It also tells us what we need to know about the size of your group and what you need to be able to do.

If you make your reservations over the phone, we will confirm them on the spot. If you do so via e-mail or using the website form, we will e-mail a confirmation back to you.

As much as possible, we like to let our Guides know not only that it’s okay to come, but also how busy we will be that day, and what other activities are going on. (For example, if you are coming the same day as the University of Florida and its 50 dive students, you might like to find out ahead of time.)
