Take our PADI Cavern Diver course to become certified as a cavern diver
After completing our PADI Cavern Diver course, you will be able to enjoy the most exciting scuba diving adventures. You will be able to venture into caverns along island walls and coasts.
Caverns exist almost everywhere. From freshwater caverns to flooded limestone caverns along the coastal sea, you will be able to get further into dark rooms. Learn how to safely visit underwater caverns and avoid the potential dangers inside.
Before becoming a full cave diver, you need to learn what caverns are and how to properly explore them.
A cavern is, by definition, the part of a cave where you can see the light at the entrance or it can be an entire small cave if you can still see the light at its deepest part.
Going beyond, to where you can not see light anymore, is cave diving.
