Cave Diving on Merritts Mill Pond

by David Miner

Map to the Mill Pond

Merritts Mill Pond is located just outside Marianna, Florida in the Panhandle part of the state. It is easily accessed via I-10 from either the east or west.

Merritts Mill Pond is over four miles of crystal clear water, beautiful cypress trees, and steep hills lining its banks. The Pond’s beauty can only be measured in geological time periods because at times you feel as if you returned to the times of the dinosaurs when nature was untouched and unmarked by human existence. There are some homes on its banks and many other signs of human interaction, but Merritts Mill Pond is still an extremely beautiful place.
