Peacock in the Flow

Flow: Up, but enjoyable, enough to reward reading the cave and diving “flow smart”
Water Level: High
Vis: 40′, yellow tint, with some particulate, cave will be easy to silt if not “well behaved” or many teams
Skeeters: Swarming

Dove the first 800-1000′ feet of Peanut line, Pothole line, and Orange Grove today. Highest flow I’ve seen at Peacock, but rather enjoyable. Ripples in floor very beautiful. Highest flow we encountered was in the P1 basin/entrance followed by in the Peanut Tunnel. Boil visible at Peacock 1 and no duckweed at Orange Grove as it’s all been pushed over to the Cisteen side.

But pictures tell the story best… make sure you scroll down to the short video at the bottom which shows particulate getting blown through the water in the Peacock 1 basin (watch in HD mode).
