Multi-Stage Cave Diver Workshop

Ready to head even further into the cave? The Multi-Stage Cave Diver Workshop is the second part of our workshop-based training sequence. Diving with multiple stages in a cave environment is different from multi-stage diving in open water. We recommend technical and deep divers complete this workshop prior to participating in multi-stage cave dives due to the specialized nature of the training. There are several procedures and possible scenarios that are unique to the cave environment.

With some of the most extensive cave systems in the world found right here in Mexico, diving with multiple stages is a great way for open circuit cave divers to reach those areas of the cave where few divers have ever ventured. Many of the most breath taking and epic power passages can be found far into the cave, in areas that can only be reached by divers carrying multiple stages. Our team regularly visits these places in there down time, ensuring we have some amazing routes to choose from for some post training guided dives to help build experience, which we would highly recommend.
