Caverns exists in many areas where scuba divers venture – from freshwater springs to volcanic island walls and limestone coasts. In these locations you’ll find large, dark caverns that seem incredibly inviting, yet are potentially dangerous. The PADI Cavern Diver Specialty course gives you the knowledge and skills to explore caverns correctly – allowing you to enter far enough for adventure, but staying within the light zone for an easy exit to open water.
Here in the Yucatan Peninsula, we are lucky enough to have dozens of caverns open to certified divers. They are safe with easy access and filled with ancient wonders that will blow your mind! Mexico is the best place in the world for cavern diving and training.

|Day 2:||7am to 4pm||Theory Session, 2 Cavern Training Dives|
You’ll complete four scuba dives with the first focused on line handling, reel use and emergency procedures outside a cavern; and the next three dives put your new skills to use inside a cavern. You’ll also learn about:
Other specialized equipment for cavern diving, such as lights and redundant breathing systems.
Avoiding disorientation and anti-silting techniques.
Dive planning, including depth and distance limits and air management for cavern diving.
Your first dive will prepare you to handle the reel, lay lines and carry a dive light, as well as becoming familiar with hand signals and emergency procedures.
For the remaining three dives, you will enter the cavern staying within the light zone and 40 metres/130 feet from the surface.
