SSI Cavern Diving Course

Scuba Diving courses: The SSI Cavern Diving course to explore caverns safely.

The SSI cavern diving course The SSI Cavern Diving course will engage you to dive deeper into the cavern zones.

With the cavern diving course, you will engage in a new way to dive, like to learn proper cave buoyancy and propulsion skills along with line laying and light usage.

What's the difference between a Cave and a Cavern in scuba diving?

A Cavern is this zone where you can still see the light from outside, so if at least, you can see the light at the entrance while exploring a flooded cave, you are in the cavern zone.

The SSI Cavern Diving course is the first step to become a Cave Diver if you want to explore, one day, the depth of the Earth.

The Cavern Diving class will teach you the knowledge and will give you the experience required to do cavern penetration dives within the light zone of a cave (the maximum depth will depend about your level certification).

Why do you need to take the SSI Cavern Diving course?

Scuba diver in a cavern An exploration into the dark cavern is such an exciting and amazing adventure that a scuba diver would want to add to their bucket list.

But a cavern is not like diving in open waters; you cannot go straight up in case of emergency to end a dive.

There are also inherent risk and danger of any overhead environment (don't bump your head it's hurt a lot, see you didn't think about this one) that you will learn during this two days scuba course.

You cannot swim in the way you are finning in open water, the first reason is the silt, the second it can be very tight in a cavern, and you might break many things.

If you can see the light at the entrance of the cavern, it does not mean that you can see when your buddies are signaling to you! Like during a night dive, you will use your underwater torch to communicate properly.

During the SSI Cavern Diving course, you will learn:

You will learn how to communicate in the dark, follow a path line, Frog kick, and different fining techniques, improve up to a perfect buoyancy, as well as :

  • Knowledge in cavern system, potentials and risk.
  • Cavern diving equipment and gears usage and orientation.
  • Detailed outline of the cavern and the decided path with the team.

It's a two days course, with four dives, there is a lot much more to learn.
