Ready to see what is behind the do not cross signs and leave the daylight behind. Taking your first cave dive is an experience that will stay with you forever.


This qualification allows you to dive into caves using a single continuous guideline (no complex navigation), with a penetration of 1/6 of two tanks.


After your Cavern Course this is the next step to progress into the world of Cave Diving.


Now you have all the basic skills from your last course let’s learn to use them in the cave environment!

Course structure

The Intro to Cave course is a minimum of 3 days*, comprised of theory sessions, land drills, in water skills and dives. During this course you will hone your cavern skills and apply them to the new demanding cave environment. You will also learn new skills such as lost buddy procedures and missing guideline protocols.


For technical courses we structure it around your needs, we learn at the pace you need to master the skills, therefore some courses may take longer than 3 days. If it has been a while since your cavern course, our 1st day will refresh all your skills.


Combine this course with Sidemount and Full Cave to get the most out of your time here.
