Full Cave Diver Course
Once you have completed Cavern Diver and Intro to Cave Diver, you are ready for the final phase of your initial cave diver training. During the Full Cave Diver course you will be tasked with advanced cave dive planning and execution. You will venture off the mainline and learn complex navigation techniques and how to always maintain a continuous guideline to your exit. You will also learn to safely navigate restrictions while penetrating much deeper into the cave systems than you have before.
The 3 or 4 day program consists of 8 cave dives and a minimum total bottom time of 240 minutes but we will probably be underwater for more than double that amount of time. There is some theory and an exam, but most of the training will be practical. At this level, time in the water is the best way to learn new techniques. After this course, you will be ready to participate in Cave Sidemount Diver.
