Never-before-seen footage takes us deep below the surface of Lake Tahoe. Get ready for some fascinating views!

On the California-Nevada state line lies a sprawling lake. This lake is known for its pristine waters and mountain backdrops. With a maximum depth of 1645 feet, Tahoe is also one of the deepest lakes in America. Most people had no hope of getting even a glimpse of its depths… until now.

With help of a GoPro camera and an abundance of creativity, Chase Petley did what no one else had done before.

Follow along as this young man gives us a revealing look using a custom-made camera box to take the quarter-mile plunge all the way to the bottom of the lake!

Although there are some adjustments to be made, Petley is well on his way to discovering more about the lake. Consider him a pioneer at his craft. Perhaps the next challenge to overcome is that of discerning myth from reality.

What kinds of creatures inhabit these vast waters? How different is the landscape, compared to what we perceive?

This is a historic event that will have a lasting effect on many future generations. For the scientific world, conquering the unknown is everything — and that appears to be happening at Tahoe.
