What are the additional benefits
of Cave Diver training?
The benefits of Cave Diver training are not limited solely to the ability to safely explore underwater caverns and caves.
- Most students say that they learn more practical information about diving in just the first few days of Cave Diver training than in any other course they have taken — including instructor courses!
- The equipment modifications one learns as a Cave Diver are not only essential for diving in overhead environments, they make open-water diving much easier as well.
- The specialized buoyancy control, body position and propulsion techniques taught in Cave Diver courses create very environmentally sound divers. One seldom sees cave divers banging into or dragging equipment across coral reefs.
- Many cave diving students are wreck divers who are seeking to learn penetration procedures and techniques they can apply to wreck diving. Although cave diving are distinctly different activities from wreck diving, many wreck divers report they find learning to cave dive helpful.
More than anything else, certified Cave Divers say that these courses are simply some of the most enjoyable experiences one can have while diving. And, when asked to describe what they got from any one course, the first words are invariably, “We learned so much!”
