I went scuba diving here on 9/24/2019. Average viz: 41-50ft/12-15m. Water temp: 66-70°F/19-21°C.
Tues. Sept. 24, 2019 - 68 degrees made a big difference on my face and brain. Thankful that my main buddy has permissions to take select divers to this privately owned site, among others. More thankful that Scotti Jay (surface support, snorkeler and photographer) graciously volunteered to carry my steels back up the steep embankment covered in sticker vines after the dive! Thankful that Guy ran a long, thick, knotted rope from his truck down to the water so that we could stable ourselves on the steep incline.

Due to deco obligations and our gas blend, we only penetrated approximately 1250 feet in, at 122 ft. depths. The chambers were enormous in many areas, leaving much to be explored, and they are pushing this system as I type.

Being a river cave, the line is of small gauge, running from top to bottom, left to right, and being covered in dirt, it blends in with the walls, making it very difficult to find should you encounter a break, a total silt out, or for some unknown reason, a total loss of light, or a loss of a buddy. All in all, it was a fun dive, and a good experience.
