Cavern Diving – An Introduction to Unique Underwater Places

Just as the surface of the ocean obscures the wonders of the underwater world, so does the ocean floor hide the veins of Mother Earth. Mother Nature and Technical Diving International (TDI) have joined to provide non-cave divers an opportunity to experience a cave underwater. During the TDI Cavern Diver course you will learn new swimming techniques by fine-tuning your body posture / trim, buoyancy control and learn how to properly deploy and follow a guideline.

This course trains divers in the proper planning, procedures, techniques and hazards of diving in caverns and the overhead environments. If you are over the age of 18 (15 with parental consent), can show proof of a SDI Open Water Scuba Diver certification or equivalent, and have a minimum of 25 logged dives, you meet the prerequisites for the program.

Breathtaking Diving in Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland is an extraordinary cave that is aptly named. It is 15 minutes by boat from Belize Diving Services and only accessible with our guides. During the TDI Cavern Diver course you will learn new swimming techniques by fine-tuning your body posture and trim, buoyancy control and learn how to properly deploy and follow a guideline.

Once your Cavern Instructor takes you into the main chamber you will be treated to a truly special marine environment. You’ll see stalagmites, stalactites and rock formations not found in the open ocean, plus nurse sharks and species unique to cave life. Per the standards of the course, you will always be able to see daylight. But below will be the caverns measureless to man.
