Under the tranquil landscapes of northern Florida, beneath the cypress and the live oaks and the glass-clear streams, a torrent surges through a maze of hidden passageways. Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of miles of cave lie drowned here. And hundreds of unwaryor merely unluckyexplorers have lost their lives attempting to probe their secrets.
Now a team of subterranean aquanauts is pushing the depths of Wakulla Springs 127>>. Don your wetsuit, clench the airhose between your teeth, climb aboard a torpedo-like scooter, and join Boyd Matson and the rest of the EXPLORER crew as they plunge into the darkness of Floridas watery underworld.
