We have caves literally 1/2 mile from our house. Its along the Holston River system. And when you raft you can see cave openings. I am wondering has anyone taken dive gear into these cave systems ? I spelunked afew in my ounger years and found water but i was curious if anyone else ever did them in thsi area.

I know a few who have dove the Kentucky and Tenn caves but they aren't the crystal clear waters of North Florida. Mostly, it was sump diving looking for more dry cave and blackwater exploration into drainages (caves). Not exactly the funnest dives.

Wow, the Holston, huh?

Were you able to find anything else out about this?

If you haven't already, Rhea's SCUBA shop in Maryville has A LOT of cave diving associated with it. You may want to give them a call. They would be the most likely place to find the info you're looking for... if someone's been in those caves, it was probably them. :)
