PADI Cavern Diver

Can you see the light? If you dive within the light zone of a cave – the area near the cave entrance where natural light is always visible – you’re in the cavern zone. The fun part is exploring secrets hidden in caverns around the world and having the knowledge and skills to do it correctly.

There are some well known cavern systems around the world that offer the chance to visit true geological history. Did you know you can visit untouched and completely virgin caverns here with us allowing YOU to become part of history in the making?
This is a challenging and very exciting course that includes four training dives over at least two days. 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 from the surface.
