Largest known Flooded Cave on Earth discovered

After searching for near two decades, divers have manage to find a connection between two massive caverns, making it the largest known flooded cave on Earth.

The Underwater Exploration Group of the Great Maya Aquifer Project (GAM), managed to connect this past Wednesday, January 10, two of the largest flooded cavern systems on Earth, which makes them the largest flooded cave in the world.
