Creature from the Black Lagoon is not known for it’s Florida location shots. However, the underwater scenes were shot in, what is now, Ed Ball Wakulla Springs State Park thirty minutes south of Tallahasasee.

The underwater shots of The Gill-Man were shot at the springs due to the clearness of the spring water.

Fort Pierce native Ricou Browning wore the underwater version of The Gill-Man suit and actress Ginger Stanley doubled for Julie Adams as the lady in distress underwater.
