Marianna's Caves Draw Divers

Published May 26, 2008
The City of Marianna hosted divers from as far away as South Africa, New Zealand, and Brazil at a national cave diving convention this Memorial Day weekend. Official numbers haven't been tabulated yet, but divers say there were well over 300 of them taking advantage of Marianna's Blue Springs and the Mill Pond.

"We're getting about 100 divers a month - about 1200 a year. That impact alone is close to a million dollars in economic benefit," Art Kimbrough with the Chamber says.
