Lil Blue is located in Hillisborough County. The sink is on SWFWMD property and is closed to vehicular traffic.
Lil Blue has a depth of at least 240 and is full of duckweed that keeps the algae from blooming, therefore visibility is often good. There are a few trees in the sink that has eye bolts installed to make a perfect place for hanging bottles. There is a small rotting wooden john boat as well as a reported Ford Model-T car. The sides are very steep and one must use either a ladder or rope to climb in and out. During the flood of 1998, this sink was completely covered by rising swamp waters. There are two separate debris cones, which make running a line imperative.
