MARTIN SPRING THANKSGIVING DIVE

December 04, 2015

Martin Spring Resurgence, Tennessee
 After the day before I was quite tired and looking forward to a day of diving orcestwell spring and Maritn Spring. After Orcestwell Spring I made it over to Martin Spring for a dive into the cave resurgence of Martin Spring High Hole.

 The viz was great and at around 15-20ft of it I was really happy to be finally making a dive in here. I kit up and follow the canyon passage that soon ended with a large beaver starring at me wondering what the heck I am doing here. He moved a bit closer to me and I noticed he had a nest in the back so I backed up and went back underwater and found the entrance to the cave.

 It is on the lower right facing into the cave and I went down about 15ft. where I tied off my primary reel and started the dive. There were a three different lines going in different directions so I made sure I set line arrows to prove my path on the way out for myself. The cave continued on and eventually I came up to air passage that was quite fascinating, I made it over to the breakdown sump and had to turn my dive due to not having enough gas to pursue an attempt to push into the High hole. I left the cave without incident. I highly recommend this dive for any certified cave diver as you get a chance to see air passage and a great tag cave dive experience.
