Learn Cave Diving

Written by Jake Miranda on . Posted in Blog

Cave diving is the ultimate scuba diving activity. It is the highest form of scuba discipline where both your dive experience and skills will truly be tested. It is also one of the most dangerous forms of participatory sport.

 

To even start to learn cave diving, we recommend that the student have at least 100 dives in open water, has a technical diving license and adequate experience, and has a sense of purpose as well to explore underwater caves.

 

The way to learn takes many paths if you look at the different agencies offering dive courses.

 

 Everything starts with Cavern.  The cavern course introduces you to the cave, its geology, and how you approach it as a diver entering for the first time. You are only allowed to get inside the lighted portion of the cave up until 60 lineal meters or 200 linear feet into the cavern or up until the light portion or when you have reached your gas limits, whichever comes first.


If cave diving is for you, you then move to Introduction to Cave. This allows to proceed to the dark zone, and along a guideline. Since you have practically started this lifelong journey to become a full cave diver, you will be rewarded with the serenity and beauty of a complete overhead environment.

 

The final course is Full Cave. You will be training as a full-fledged overhead diver and doing navigational courses from the main guideline. You will be penetrating deeper into the cave, confident that your lessons from Cavern and Intro to Cave have brought you here.

The more you train, the better cave diver you be. The more caves you train in, the better cave diver shall be.  But there is no Zero to Hero program in cave diving. You cannot start in Cavern and then become Full Cave Diver in weeks. There should be pauses between programs to allow you to progress safely with caution.

In the Philippines, we emphasize Thank God All Divers Live Long or T-G-A-D-L-L! That is, proper (T)raining, strong (G)uideline, (A)ir management, (D)epth limits, best (L)ights and (L)ocal knowledge.

 

Cave diving is a unique course and cave courses are a rarity. It is not for everyone. It is estimated that there are only 3,000 cave divers  from among 3,000,000 scuba divers in the world. A rare 0.1 of one percent.
