Well cavern diving is defined as any dive conducted within the light zone of a cave. The light zone is the area near the entrance of the cave where you can see natural lights at all times.
Diving in a cavern can be potentially dangerous without proper training and knowledge even if you are in the light zone. But it also offers unique dives with beautiful landscapes.
As a diver you will find caverns everywhere you will go diving and having the knowledge and the skills to do it correctly will make it much easier.
So if you want to put excitement into your diving adventures and discover caverns all over the world or here with us in the Red Sea, follow the PADI Cavern Diver Specialty Course.
