The Cavern Diver Course
Why Cavern Diver?
If you dive within the light zone of a cave, the area near the cave entrance where natural light is always visibly, you’re cavern diving. If you want to explore secrets hidden in caverns around the world you’ll need your Cavern Diver certification.
The Fun Part
During your first open water dive you’ll practice line handling, reel use and emergency procedures without entering a cavern. But, for your next three dives, you’re headed into the cavern, staying within the light zone and 40 metres/130 feet total distance of the surface.
