Cavern & Cave Training
Check the links just above for individual class pages.
Dayo Scuba's Cavern and Cave Diving Training provides certifications from the two largest cave diving training agencies; Technical Diving Internation (TDI) and the National Speleological Society Cave Diving Section (NSS CDS).
You can't always readily recognize the dangers associated with cavern and cave diving, and many, too many, UNTRAINED divers have died diving them. Take the training and do it right.
Cavern and cave diving are not for every diver, but if you have the necessary buoyancy skills. diving experience, discipline, and the desire, it could be for you. These courses help you develop the skills and knowledge for cavern and cave diving. All our training is done in the best of Florida's caverns and caves. Our favorite training sites include, in this order, Peacock Springs, Little River, Madison, and Ginnie Springs, but there are many others like Manatee Springs, Telford Springs and Blue Spring to name only a few.
Please get proper training before EVER venturing into a cave or cavern!
We require cavern students to be nitrox certified or take the course in combination with the cavern class. Because many of our caves in north Florida require decompression, we can't teach Full Cave to anyone without the Advanced Nitrox and Decompression certifications (or you can also take them with the Cave course).
Dayo Scuba owns, hosts, sponsors and maintains the leading Cave Diving Forum (www.cavediver.net). For information and resources about cave diving, check it out: Click Here to Read More on our Cave Diver's Forum
Our cave instructors and instructor trainers include Tom Johnson (TJ), Denise Byrne, Chris Leavitt, and Carol Sugars.
