TDI CCR Intro Cave – Closed Circuit Rebreather

TDI CCR intro cave course

Diver course – LEVEL 2

TDI CCR Intro Cave diver – Level 2 available in Phuket, Thailand, development program utilising closed circuit rebreathers, manual or electronic. This CCR Cave Diver Level directly builds upon the Intro to Cave Diver course. Basic cave dive planning, the practical execution of different types of cave systems and scenarios divers encounter are presented. This cave diving course is not intended to prepare divers for evaluating all facets of cave diving. Emphasis is placed upon dive planning and skill perfection through actual cave penetration.

This course is conducted over 2 full days (Cave level 2 CCR can also be combined with the CCR cavern and CCR full cave courses).

The location for these courses in Thailand by Blue Label Diving is in the fresh water lake, 4 hours outside of Phuket, in a village called Thing Yai in the lake of Song Hong (2 rooms). Because it is far outside of Phuket or not close by any tourist locations, we include accommodation, Burilamplai, and food during the cave courses. 

The TDI Rebreather intro to cave course is never taught as a stand alone course but always combined with either an other CCR cave course or with a DPV cave course or with some fun cave diving afterwards. We recommend to spend a total amount of 5 to 6 days spend at this location. There are lines in the lake at 20, 40, 60 and 80 meters.
