Jacob’s Well, Texas, USA. Found in Cypress Creek the spring offers probably the most unique and off the wall swimming experience. The karst spring is 3,7 m (12 ft) wide and descends for more than 9 m (30 ft) straight. Then with all the angles and windings it finally reaches a depth of 37 m (120 ft).
However exciting it may look, diving here is really dangerous. Although water is crystal clear, creating a great visibility to the well, it is also quite chilly. The spring has four chambers – divers who have explored it report that it features beautiful karst formations.
Why to go there?
A beautiful natural wonder to look at and swim in. Also remember to bring some footwear to use in water, since it is slippery there.
When to go there?
Anytime if you are just to see it, in summer if you are willing to have a dip.
How to get there?
It is best to get to Jacob‘s Well Natural Area by car from Wimberley. There is a parking lot and the spring is just a short walk away from there.
