2. Accidents do happen while diving
3. Visibility Can Become Poor While Diving
4. It Can Get Dark In Places during night dives
5. SMB Lines Can Sometimes entangle and pull you up
You see there are not that many differences except for when you are open water diving and in the unlikely event something bad happens you can go direct up to the surface. During overhead, cave or Wreck, this is not the case. This is why training with the right instructor and dive center is crucial.
You will learn so many skills like ; Lost buddy, lost line, dragging an unconscious buddy out of the cave, out of air situations, lost light etc etc. With this many skills you need a minimum of 7 days to complete the Full Cave course program.
