The scariest experience inside Jacob’s Well, Wimberley Texas

Jacob’s Welll in Texas Hill Country is a
perennial karstic spring located on the bed of Cypress Creek in Wimberley. The
mouth of the Well is four meters in diameter through which thousands of
gallons of water surges up per minute feeding Cypress Creek that flows
through Wimberley substaining Blue Hole and the Blanco River, recharging the
Edwards Aquifer and finally replenishing estuaries in the Gulf of Mexico. The Well
was first discovered in the 1850s when a couple of early settlers
followed Cypress Creek to it’s source. They described the crevice in the creek
bed which was overflowing with an abundance of clear, cool water as “like unto a well in Bible times”. Since then, the location has been a beloved swimming hole for generations, a gathering place for Native Americans and
early settlers and a rich habitat for aquatic species. It is also a popular
diving spot for thrill seekers, despite the fact that at least eight divers
have lost their lives here over the years.

  1. Apparently several people have lost their lives in this well. I can’t believe there are no warning signs. I read an article that said you have to have a permit to dive in it. Can anyone who lives there or has been there confirm???

  2. Hello, It's Mikołaj from NTD Television. These videos are great:

  3. Early settlers lmao I lover the fact they call themselves ‘settlers’ while everyone else is an immigrant 🤔 interesting

  4. I afraid of depths. Even if someone telss tha it's 2m deep and you cant see how deep it is.
    But this is my nightmare.

  5. Diving in that situation is purely to show off to other people. There's no way these people would dive in that if they were alone.

  6. Great last minute of the video. Skilled camerawork. Interesting that they call a mile-long (or longer) tunnel system a "well" and a "cave" / "cave system." Where does the tunnel system lead? How far down? Perhaps a drone can be sent down to find out the extent of the tunnel system.
