Wakulla Springs isn't as clear as it used to be, but musical tour guides carry on

On days when the water is crystal clear — a rarity now — he takes visitors on a bonus tour. He welcomes them into a glass-bottomed boat and shows them Wakulla Springs, the largest, deepest and most powerful spring in North America, where 600,000 gallons of water rise from the earth every minute. He points out the caves, the eel grass, the largemouth bass.

Gavin, 56, is incapable of lecturing like an academic. He more or less sings about what he is seeing. That's the way they have done it here for going on 80 years.
