Sometimes people giving cavern diving a bad image and suggest people not to do it, which is a complete nonsense. Since all our cavern dives are conducted very safely and the group size are held to max. of 4 divers per guide. The guide is a trained cave diver and instructor and using double tanks with cave diving gear.
