No that is up by Bella Coola on the coast, you have to take the Port Hardy to Prince Rupert ferry to get to Bella Coola. So like a hella long way from Seattle (20hrs travel?). They are dry cavers mostly, not cave divers, as you can probably tell.

That was posted to our caver group yesterday and I'm guessing the water is tannin year round, but it might clear up at lowest summer flows when the salmon aren't there. It might even be a mostly dry cave in August.

Salmon swim into a mountain and vanish!

Rjack, is this one of the caves you guys checked out? Seems to me they could use some real video, and you guys were getting nice footage...
