Jacobs Well north of Wimberly, Texas United States of America

Jacob's Well is a perennial karstic spring in the Texas Hill Country flowing from the bed of Cypress Creek, located northwest of Wimberley, Texas. The 12-foot diameter mouth of the spring serves as a popular swimming spot for the local land owners whose properties adjoin Cypress Creek. From the opening in the creek bed, Jacob's Well cave descends vertically for about 30 feet, then continues downward at an angle through a series of silted chambers separated by narrow restrictions, finally reaching an average depth of 120 feet (37 m). It is a very mysterious place some are frightened by that, and some are drawn to it” Jacob’s Well is formed of several chambers, which many divers have tried to explore through the years, although at least 10 inexperienced divers also discovered that answering the siren call of the cave was not such a good idea after all.
