Blue Algae Boil is located in the Seminole State Forest about 1.8 miles southeast of Cassia.
Blue Algae Boil has a slightly elongated natural spring pool that measures 15 feet long, 10 feet wide, and 0.4 feet deep. During a June 2003 visit, no vent was visible due to the large amount of organic material, including dark bluish-green algae, covering the spring bottom. The water is clear with a slight hydrogen sulfide odor.
The spring run measures 5 feet wide, 0.3 feet deep and flows 75 feet south. It joins Sulphur Run flowing from the east. The area surrounding the spring is publicly-owned, hardwood forest with palmetto understory.
Blue Algae Boil is a 5th magnitude spring.
The spring is undeveloped.
This spring is located on public property in the Seminole State Forest.
