History of the discovery of Coskere Cave.

Cosker Cave was discovered in several stages. Since 1985 Henry Cusker, diving instructor and diver, He begins to get acquainted with the siphon of long access underwater (the entire path under the water is 175 m, including 116 m where it is impossible to reach the surface). And then, around July of 1991, the discoveries would follow one another, and Henri Cusquier, with his friends, would leave the sea to enter the cave on foot and discover its wonders. So it will be announced on September 3, 1991, after a tragic event: on September 1, 1991, four divers enter the long gut leading to the cave, but are not sufficiently prepared … Only one will return alive.
