oh wow, can you see under that!?

There is enough light to see on a sunny day. Cloudy days may be a problem.

Looks like it might qualify as an overhead environment dive.

You do OW and overhead from there.

Bill Parker, are you full cave yet? Eric, yes there is significant overhead here at Catfish, and multiple entries into the cave system too, one being a syphon over to Manatee. Obviously, full cave certifications only. The cavern portion is at around 67 ft. With catfish roaming, I would certainly run a line into it’s furthest penetration, as ambient light can disappear fast if the catfish muck it up.
