Delta DiversRacing the Storm (eps. 2)

In this episode, we follow two dive teams taking on some of the biggest challenges the Gulf of Mexico has to offer. The divers aboard the "Southern Hercules" barge are 120 miles out to sea to disassemble and plug an aging subsea oil well. They are diving as deep as regulations allow from the surface: nearly 300 feet underwater. The hazards increase exponentially along with the depth. After detonating an explosive charge to cut the well pipes below the seafloor, they find that mysterious and potentially extremely dangerous bubbles are flowing from the well. Aboard the "Arapaho" heavy lift barge, the dive team faces a tight schedule and the constant threat of heavy weather as they take a massive platform apart by burning through steel underwater. Supervisor Scott Noakes gives his lead tender, an apprentice diver, a chance to get her feet wet.
