Tarpon Bayou

    Tarpon Bayou Sink is located in Tarpon Springs.

    The cave here (through dye testing) connects with Knight Sink and Lake Tarpon Sink. Visibility is usually very poor, but you can sometimes get something decent during high tide. This is the site of the annual Greek Epiphany event where the archbishop throws a cross for several boys to retrieve. The one who obtains the cross is blessed and said to have good luck for the following year. The steep concrete sides make entry and egress difficult if the water is low.
