As the first in a series of overhead courses, the TDI Cavern Course takes a serious look at the skills needed to conduct safe and enjoyable cavern dives. Although the cavern course is conducted in the light zone you will still be in an overhead environment. Your Dive Addicts Cavern Instructor we cover topics and skills such as

  • Equipment configuration and preparation
  • Body posture and trim
  • Propulsion techniques
  • Cavern conservation
  • Proper guideline procedures

The TDI Overhead Environments: Complete Guide to Cavern and Cave Diving manual will outline the procedures for conducting cavern dives and a great addition to your diving library.


This course is designed to develop the minimum skills and knowledge for cavern and overhead environment diving within the limits of light penetration; in addition outlines specific hazards associated with cave diving.
