GUE Cave 2

Cave Diver Level 2

What
Cave 2 builds upon the skills learned in Cave 1 and the experience gained between classes to teach cave divers how to transition from new-overhead-divers to full cave divers. This course includes instruction, practice, and feedback on stage diving, advanced navigation including jumps/circuits/traverses, extended cave penetration, staged oxygen decompression, and refinement of the cave diving skill set including guideline work, emergency procedures, teamwork, communication, environmental awareness, rescue, conservation, and accident analysis. Expect to spend a lot of time in the water, do some longer dives, see some new-to-you cave, and have a lot of fun.

Why
Enjoy the beauty of exploring our planet’s inner space. Explore the wet rocks of underwater caves, delicate formations, massive rooms, beautiful clay banks, twisty passage, awe-inspiring speleothems, and unique cave-adapted critters. At Wet Rocks Diving we have passion for cave diving and love sharing this with others. Cave 2 becomes your license to learn and to refine your thinking brains to plug into new locations and situations as you get to see more and more new-to-you cave with the new tools that Cave 2 affords a team.
