What You'll Do
  • Get professional instruction toward certification in cave and cavern diving
  • Learn how to safely deal with most emergency situations in overhead environments
  • Navigate along established cavern lines and cave lines
Overview
Diving safely in overhead environments requires training and practice. On this 6-day Cavern and Intro to Cave Course you’ll work with a well-trained, experienced, professional guide with the goal of certification and diving beyond recreational limits!
What to Expect
The Cavern and Intro to Cave Course is a thorough 6-day program that aims to make you a safe, controlled, and aware diver in any overhead diving environment.

Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, with its hundreds of cenotes, caverns, and cave passages, is an ideal site for recreational and full cave divers as well as explorers. Puerto Aventuras is the hub for all cavern and cave training in the area and the nearest training sites are just a 10-minute ride away.

The Cavern portion of the performance-based course normally requires 3 days to complete and is followed by the Intro to Cave course, which then requires an additional 2 days.

Both courses are a combination of theoretical knowledge buildup and practical application. Your instructor will be a very experienced, well-established professional, who will guide you through all the steps in both courses.

During the training program you’ll visit at least 4 different cenotes in both the open water and Cavern and Intro to Cave sections.

Once you have completed this training you’ll be ready to either book guided cave dives or enroll in the full cave course program to become a fully independent and trained cave diver.
