The contents of this manual are the distillation of the CDG’s knowledge of UK cave diving which is the result of its’ history that can be traced back to the earliest dives at Swildon’s Hole in 1934 by G. Balcombe and J. Shepppard. Focusing mainly on side mount techniques currently used in UK cave diving. The manual also introduces techniques used farther afield such as backmount configurations, rebreathers, scooters and habitats.

The manual assumes a knowledge of caving and the basic use of scuba equipment allowing it to concentrate on cave diving. It covers:

  • Dive planning
  • Core techniques
  • Line laying
  • Surveying
  • Exploration

And all the other areas within the CDG training standard.

“The pages of this manual are a testament of the huge practical advances made by our group in exploring the flooded underworld. Its pages are an instruction in caution but cave diving will always be a blend of caution mixed with daring. The former we can put to print but the latter is for the individual to understand and control”.
