Cave Diving Training
It is often being claimed that cave diving is the most challenging diving activity of all. This is not a wrong claim at all. Cave divers need to be able to master a variety of skills and procedures which are completely unnecessary in recreational diving.
As soon as you achieved mastery in diving with a redundant system, namely either a twinset or sidemount, you can start your journey into the beauty of the underworld, which the majority of the people will never be able to see.
A complete cave diving education is divided into three parts: Cavern – Intro to Cave – Full Cave
