CAVERN AND CAVE DIVER TRAINING

INTRO TO TEC

Don’t waste time during your cave course. Before you head into the cave, or even start your course, take the time to learn the basics of tec diving. This course refines your buoyancy and propulsion techniques while building the core skills required for cave diving. Your cave course will go more smoothly and efficiently if you take this course first.

CAVERN DIVER

Are you crazy for wanting to dive into dark, flooded holes? We don’t think so. In fact, we’ll get you started. The cavern course is the first step of the journey to becoming a cave diver.  This course is full of information: you’ll learn line work, navigation, and emergency management skills that are the basis for every other cave course we offer.

INTRO TO CAVE

What’s even better than Mexico’s caverns? Mexico’s Caves! The Intro to Cave Course builds logically on your cavern course, applying the skills you learned in cavern diving to the cave environment and adding new skills such as lost diver and lost line. Certification never expires and there’s countless beautiful dives to be made in Mexico at this level.

FULL CAVE

Are you tired of the mainline? Are the side passages calling you? They tend to do that. For divers with the soul of an explorer, Intro to Cave isn’t enough for long. Once you’ve gained a little experience at the introductory level, the TDI Full Cave Course will take you down jump lines, through restrictions, and into dreamscapes you never imagined.

STAGE CAVE

Stage diving is great: you can make one cave dive a day instead of two without sacrificing total bottom time.  Stage diving takes you to the most pristine parts of the cave, and allows you to easily and safely recalculate gas to check out side leads during your exit. You work less and see more, and still make it out of the cave in time for a late lunch.

DPV CAVE

Screaming through cave passageways on a DPV ride is pretty much the most fun you can have on the planet. It’s like flying and diving all at once, jetting over bizarre topography, flying through bedding planes . . . you’ll never want to swim again. Technically speaking, DPVs are a “tool” to get your farther into the cave. And that’s why we use them. Really. I promise.

ADVANCED SIDE MOUNT CAVE DIVER

Is tighter really better? Yeah it is! It’s also much more difficult. The stakes go up, as reduced visibility and entanglement become more likely, and you can’t always turn to your buddy for help. This course refines your self rescue skills as you learn to remove gear underwater to squeeze into all those tight passageways that only the completely crazy cave divers want to go. Divers like you.

CAVE SIDE MOUNT CROSSOVER

You’ve heard about this side mount thing, and it looks pretty neat . . . before you go and buy a side mount system online and just try it yourself, realize there’s a lot more to cave side mount than meets the eye. A dedicated side mount course will help you fly through the water effortlessly while getting the full benefit of your new system immediately.
