About
The desire for underwater adventure in caves, caverns and cenotes has settled in you? Mexico has the most concentrated submerged cave system in the world. The Yucatan Peninsula is a gigantic karst plateau with the two longest underground systems in the world (Ox Bel Ha and Sac Actun). It is an ideal place to follow this course because the region offers cave dives of all types and levels with different passages and depths. This course is an introduction to the basic principles of cave diving utilizing a single primary guideline. Introductory cave diving is the second level in the development of safe techniques for cave diving, directly building upon the cavern diver course. The objective of this course is the perfection of skills taught in the cavern diving program, in addition to the adoption of additional techniques and procedures required for elementary cave dives.

Пишу отзыв о курсе Intro to Cave. Но, забегая вперед, скажу, что уже завершил курс Full Cave у Димы Назара в марте 2020.
Что вообще для этого нужно? Желание, интерес, любопытство. То, что в итоге перевесит все трудности обучения. Все перечисленное возникло во мне во время той замечательной первой поездки в Мексику некоторое время назад, когда мне повезло впервые окунуться в сеноты Юкатана. Стало ясно, что сеноты - они как двери, за которыми скрыта своя вселенная. Подземные пространства, доступные немногим. Шагнуть за этот порог, посмотреть, и вернуться. Этого хотелось уже тогда.
Уже писал об этом, но повторюсь. Выбор Diversland для меня не случаен. Диму и Аню Назар я знаю давно, еще с Египта. Но, в контексте пещерных курсов важнее даже не сам факт знакомства и положительного опыта. Гораздо важнее - доверие. Пройдя три пещерных курса у Димы Назара, могу сказать - доверие - хороший критерий для выбора инструктора. Я о своем выборе не жалею. В пещере многое узнаёшь о напарнике и инструкторе. Но неизмеримо больше узнаёшь о себе.

С уважением, Виктор Кустов.
