Looking for the source of the Pearse River. Really impressive.

:scuba:
Letting the days go by / water flowing underground
Into the blue again / in the silent water
Under the rocks and stones / there is water underground.

I remember watching the documentary about this on TV in NZ back in the 90's. I wasn't actively caving much or keeping in the social caver loop at that time, and was a little surprised when a key person drowns half way through an otherwise standard no-drama documentary. Sad.

teehee at some narrator lines "the cave is really dark" "it takes special diving skills to go so deep" no shit Sherlock!

Really nice video though, A+ would watch again. Is there a way to see the full documentary that NZ mentions? And dannnng that is cold water. I swam in Lake MI when it was around 55f one year and that was rather cold, I remember only staying in for about 15-20 min at a time (it was just my brother and I at the beach too...perhaps stupid now that I look back on it.)
