How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

What do you do with a drunken sailor?

You first have to catch him!  The drunken sailor has made off with the rum!  Earl-eye in the morning!  He was last seen in Baptist Lake, but no one is sure exactly which way he went.  Rumor has it that there are clues along the way to his whereabouts. 

This cache will take you on a short tour of the dive park at Bishop Lake. You should be able to complete your journey on one tank of air, but you will need to be efficient.  When mapping this park, we were able to complete the entire tour on one tank, but we weren’t looking for a drunken sailor :-)

This is a true Dive Cache! You will travel from a depth of about 24feet to a max depth of about 33feet. You will make three choices along your route, until you reach your final destination. There you will find the cache and directions home. Good Luck!
