Explorers ReachBottom of Deepest Underwater Cave on Earth – Hutton Pulitzer #GoXplrr

Explorers in the Czech Republic have just completed an expedition to the underwater cave Hranická Propast — also known as the Hranice Abyss — verifying for the first time since its discovery in 1999 that it really is the deepest underwater cave on Earth.

The team, led by Polish diver Krzysztof Starnawski, managed to reach a depth of 404 metres (1,325 feet) using a remotely operated vehicle (ROV), which means this limestone cavern is 12 metres (39 feet) deeper than the second deepest underwater cave that we know of — Italy’s Pozzo del Merro.
