Cave Guide

The NAUI Cave Guide course provides you with the skills and knowledge needed to plan and execute guided tours in caverns and caves.

As a Cave Guide, your responsibilities might include escorting stressed diver(s) out of a cave system, repairing broken guide lines, as well as assuring that all guided divers are out of the cave after completion of a dive. 

What You Will Learn

Your NAUI Cave Guide course includes a minimum of three dives, one cavern guided dive and two cave guided dives. Become proficient in analyzing your own breathing gas mixture, the use of general navigational markings, zero visibility/touch contact communications while following a line, as well as many other skills that are necessary to be a competent NAUI Cave Guide.

You must be at least 18 years of age to enroll in the NAUI Cave Guide course. You must also be a certified NAUI Divemaster and NAUI Cave Diver Level II (or their equivalents), and have a minimum of 100 logged cave dives after certification as a NAUI Cave Diver Level II with at least 50 hours of bottom time.
