Can anybody tell me where i can get tuition in cave diving in the UK, have read the C.D.G. manual about 100 times as i use many of there methods in wreck diving, as good as this group is i feel it is more for cavers than divers

Where are you situated? As a member of the caving fraternity, I may be able to point you in the right direction.

Regards,

David.

Id say Martin Robson, http://www.eau2.com

Luckily his cave training is far better than his web authoring ;)

Seriously, hes VERY thorough, you know that when you finish the course, you bought training, rather than just a ticket.

Hes based out of Runnymede Dive, but I did my course with him in Florida... much better!

Try Martyn Farr (www.farrworld.co.uk) at Crickhowell in south Wales. I did an excellent course with him. Also Phill Short at Phoenix Oceaneering (www.phoenixdivers.com) another very experienced instructor and caver. Good luck.

Nick I’m guessing that you are a non caver? Your motivation for cave diving will in some ways dictates your course of action and weather you are looking to get a TDI or IANTD ‘ticket’ or learn through an ‘apprenticeship’ and become a member of the CDG. I know both Martyn and Phil are they are both very good. www.philshorttechnical.co.uk/; www.farrworld.co.uk

If you are going to move forward and become a Cave Diver, I would suggest that you find out which is your nearest CDG section and make yourself known to them. As a non caver I would strongly recommend that you start caving as not all sumps are close to the entrance.
