Divers find final link in underground aquatic cave system

Published August 01, 2007
The connection of the Leon Sinks and Wakulla Springs cave systems means the total system is 28 miles long, making it the longest underwater cave in North America.

The majority of the passageway is between 260 and 300 feet deep. It connects vast caverns many stories high, narrow tunnels, sinkholes and springs in the 288,000-acre Woodville Karst Plain. The divers use scooters to extend their range and pre-stage breathing equipment
