Inside nation's deepest spring

Published August 29, 2007
The cave system under Weeki Wachee is now regarded as the deepest underwater cave in the United States at 403 feet. A team of cave divers with Karst Underwater Research have pushed the system to that depth during a series of dives earlier this summer.

Researchers still believe the Weeki Wachee cave system is connected to another one known as Twin Dees Spring, located southwest of Weeki Wachee. Karst divers have tracked more than 2,000 feet of passages in Twin Dees Spring, about 200 feet deep in some places.
