Divesitevideos.com produced a really nice video of cave diving in Mexico. The images were shot last May. <a href="http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7099692863668916315&q=cave">Click here to watch the video</a>.

There are couple more videos from the same trip on their site:

Wow, nice footage. It looks as though the diver was using 2 scooters. Is that right?

Maybe a cave diver can look at the video and answer that question. I don't dive but it looked to me like he was carrying an extra (backup?) scooter between his legs.

Oh OK, I'm not a diver either. He looked like a pushme pullyou or however Dr. Doolittle spelled it.

Feeling that I am being sucked into a joke butt....
The trailing scooter does not have the prop turning. Towing the second scooter extends the range of the diver. Cindy :waving:
