CAVE EQUIPMENT


To safely and effectively dive the cavern or cave environment we need specialized and properly configured equipment. 

This equipment section includes gear used at all levels of overhead training. Our desired objective is for the equipment configuration to be streamlined and efficient so as to provide the greatest degree of safety and comfort in the cavern or cave environment.

 

Though the Cavern student may elect to proceed through Cavern training in basic open water equipment modified to meet the demands of the environment, this section will provide a full review of the specialized equipment required at more advanced levels of overhead training.

 

We recommend that our students in a more advanced level of training obtain and utilize their own equipment which will increase their ability to successfully complete their training.

 

However, prior to making a substantial equipment purchase—particularly at the Cavern and Intro to Cave levels—please feel free to contact us so that we can provide you with valuable information for your gear selection.
