ABACO’S ASTOUNDING UNDERGROUND CAVES (2)


ABACO’S ASTOUNDING UNDERGROUND CAVES (2)

This is the second of a series of photos taken by diver Hitoshi Miho in the underground cave systems of Abaco in conjunction with the  Bahamas Caves Research Foundation. This series forms part of a wider project for the blog in due course. With Hitoshi’s kind permission, here are a few more examples of his wonderful images of the silent and mysterious world that lies beneath Abaco. I’ve recently been lightly involved with marine pollution and the environmental effects of ill-considered development. One dreads to imagine the adverse effects on these caves and the blues holes that might result from a massive dredging project of the sort currently being contentiously and litigiously carried out in the pristine waters of Bimini. Thousands of years of crystal development could be lost in a comparative blink of an eye.

    • Fabulous, aren’t they? Thanks for the retweet. There will be more, but I am using them sparingly until I have time to make a detailed page for speleology – which is very far from my experience… RH

    • And the area is known as ‘the garden’. It’s hard to see how those exact shapes ever came to be formed. These caves are quite dangerous – you have to be an experienced scuba person to explore them. There are scary narrow openings to negotiate. So I have to rely on others for this, while I do doggy paddle in a quiet bit of open sea. RH
