    The purpose of the Cave Diver's Forum is to provide a place on the internet for civil discussions of anything cave diving related. This site is not a place to learn how to cavern or cave dive. This site contains plenty of comments, stories, reports, and opinions. Be careful, responsible, and mature, both in your posts and how you use anything you read here. Moderators do not monitor the accuracy of the content of threads posted here, and the opinions posted herein are personal opinions, and as such can be misleading and/or inaccurate. Entry into any overhead environment without proper training and equipment can get you killed.

    New to diving and not yet cavern or cave certified? Watch this short movie if so. It might save a life; yours!

    2016 nss-cds workshop

    I don't recall a link on the registration to sign up for a rebreather demo. Is this going to be a "show up and try a rebreather" or is there going to be a sign up process at the workshop?

    Accident in MX
