Into the Darkness: A Pioneering Underwater Cave Explorer on the Courage We Need Above Ground


In the claustrophobic darkness of water-filled caves, International Scuba Diving Hall-of-Famer and renowned explorer Jill Heinerth has learned to master her fear. For more than 30 years, Heinerth has journeyed to the most remote corners of the planet. Whether being the first person to cave dive an Antarctic iceberg more than twenty years ago, or going farther inside an underwater cave system than any woman before her, Heinerth finds herself in situations where an error on the job could cost lives. But she also sees possibilities for the explorer’s mindset beyond the dark and remote caves where she has made a name for herself. In “Into the Darkness,” Heinerth will explore the great potential of courage and curiosity above ground.
