Cave Diving

Coming back from a dive or a dry cave trip with empty reels and full survey books is the goal of every explorer. Exploration is driven by the excitement to go where no person has been before- to see new places, to find new animals, the hope that the exploration will continue, no matter how logistically difficult.

This session will consist of informal presentations on cave diving equipment and techniques.
