Open Water Divers in Caves

This spent this last week cave diving in Cave Country, Florida.  I saw something at Ginnie Springs that was truly amazing!  I am coming out of The Devil's Eye, when I notice that there are two open water divers down past the sign.  To make maters even more amazing, they only had one light between the two of them, and to top it off, one of them was towing a float with a flag on it, attached to a long yellow nylon rope inside the cave!  Wonders never cease to amaze me.

I escorted both of them out of the cave, took them to the surface and tried to explain to them just how dangerous their actions were.  Their response to me was "It's OK, we're local!"  Like this is some kind of excuse for dangerous behavior!
