I came across a pretty unique diving site in Mexico last week.. The place is called Angelita and it’s a 60m deep cenote in the middle of a jungle in the Yucatán peninsula, Mexico.
A special feature of this site is a 1-2m thick cloud of hydrogen sulfide 30 meters deep that separates the fresh water from the salt water. Visibility in the upper fresh water part is practically unlimited, making diving feel like flying. Visibility in the sulfide cloud drops to zero. The hydrogen sulfide layer smells like rotten eggs and you can smell it even through the mask.. If you dare to dive through the cloud, you’ll end up in the salt water part where visibility again gets better, although the water is murky brown and quite spooky.
Here’s a video I shot of my dive instructor Paula diving through the cloud. Please excuse the amateurish video quality
See a neat related flick on Angelita (not mine).
