About Jill

JILL HEINERTH is an underwater explorer, writer, photographer, speaker, and filmmaker.

Jill was a lead diver on the ground-breaking US Deep Caving Team project piloting the first 3D underwater cave mapping device - technology bound for space.

A pioneer of technical rebreather diving, she was the first to dive into underwater caves inside Antarctic icebergs. From desert oases in the Sahara to Baffin Bay's cold waters, Jill Heinerth becomes the hands and eyes for climatologists, archaeologists, and engineers.

Her book, INTO THE PLANET, has been lauded by the Wall Street Journal, Oprah Magazine, and the New York Times.
