    They need to crack down on cave divers taking OW divers into the cavern and cave and allowing OW divers to enter the water with lights. That is more dangerous than trained rebreather divers diving in the cave.

    The cave police are monitoring these sites ...

    Y’all need to quit being so effing cheap. You spent thousands and thousands on your rebreather, drysuit, bailout tanks, ccr training, and cave training. It’s like a 2-4 day crossover for under a grand.

    If you don’t like it, dive somewhere else.

    This is almost as bad as the people who complained about needing to pay to join the nsscds to dive cow.

    They wouldn't accept my buddy's GUE CCR and Cave 2 cards when we were there a few weeks ago because neither card mentioned the other. They did accept his expired annual pass that had cave CCR on the little price tag stickers as proof of training though.

    No one checked on us or our wrist bands past the counter.

    Sounds like someone with a card printer could make some easy money.

    Have you not met many technical divers?

    Sounds like a come back plan for the NACD. If only they could figure out who has the printer.

    look at the deaths over the last few years. I don't think there has been an OW diver death in a long while and most of them have been RB divers. More training is not a bad thing. Even the most experienced divers could use it to keep complacency from causing problems.

    Sorry Frank but CCR Cave is a stupid class. If you know how to cave dive and were properly trained then adding a CCR to the mix shouldn't require another class. I'm disappointed to hear that GUE is caving to rules written by people that barely dive.

    Divers that were cave trained on a CCR already have a Cave CCR card. The only people that don't have a CCR Cave card are divers that were cave trained on OC and later did a CCR class. Arguably, these divers have a much stronger background in OC gas planning than the other group so what exactly is a Cave CCR class supposed to be teaching them? Perhaps a better policy would be to require an OC cave card to go cave diving at Ginnie.
