Cave diving is the art to dive into the overhead environment, into water filled caves where you can glide weightless through large rooms or small passages, marvelling at nature's beauty. There are a number of rules and techniques that need to be followed and implemented in order to successfully cave dive, meaning coming out of the cave having had a good time instead a stressful experience. Combine this with a rebreather and you have the ability to go further with less gas on your back!
Topics covered include the following: CCR Cave limitation, introduction to cave hazards, CCR cave equipment requirements, multiple dive teams with multiple reels, multiple dive teams with one primary reel, recalculation dives, simple and complex traverse procedures, simple and complex circuits, jumping procedures, reverse jumping procedures, ambient awareness, decompression diving procedures, bail-out diving strategy, stage decompression procedures, dissimilar tank turn around procedures, anti silting techniques, trim and equipment streamlining, line protocol and awareness, complex dive planning and a lot more...
In order to learn CCR cave diving properly a training program has to be completed either in stages or as a whole, with a considerable amount of time invested in learning and repeating new diving skills and procedures where your commitment and resolve will be tested through intense training days filled with awesome diving experiences.
If you wish to learn cave diving on your CCR you must have it's operation as well as your buoyancy control down as second nature in order to concentrate purely on the cave diving skills.
Training agency standards require you to have a minimum of 30 hours on your rebreather before participating in a CCR Cave Diver course but we recommend to do more hours on the unit before participating in this course.
