Cave Diving

cave divingCave diving is a type of technical diving in which specialized SCUBA equipment is used to enable the exploration of natural or artificial caves which are at least partially filled with water. It is an extension of the more common sport of caving, but is much more rarely practised because of the skills and equipment required, and because of the high potential risks.

Despite these risks, water-filled caves attract cavers and speleologists due to their often unexplored nature, and present divers with a technical diving challenge. Caves often have a wide range of unique physical features, such as stalactites and stalagmites, and can contain unique flora and fauna not found elsewhere.

Cave diving training includes equipment selection and configuration, guideline protocols and techniques, gas management protocols, communication techniques, propulsion techniques, emergency management protocols, and psychological education. As cave diver training stresses the importance of safety it does point out cave conservation ethics as well. Most training programs contain various stages of certification and education.

IDC Scuba run Cave Diver training all year round. All the cave training is conducted in Mt Gambier, South Australia. We organise all logistics to ensure you have a safe and exciting course.
