No, only cave certified. Also have my deep diver, nitrox, advanced open water, cavern, and played around with rebreathers. Very cool. You have to get cavern before you can get cave. But Florida is the place to do it. There are some very cool caves here. One of my favorites was only 20 to 30 feet deep, but had everything, cathedral ceilings, areas of high parallel walls, jumble rock you had to literally climb through because the spaces were so tight, beautiful white walls, fossils in the walls. Just gorgeous. The furthest I have been back into a cave is 1800 feet, and that is with doubles on my back and staging 2 tanks in the cave, with O2 staged outside to deco on. Very, very cool.
OK, now I am jealous. The red sea! I would love that. I have only been to the Bahamas, the Keys, Cozumel, West Palm, off of our shore, and I have done a bunch of cave diving in all of the springs in Florida. We are certified cave divers as well. Now my boyfriend is a dive fanatic. He does the 200+ dives alot, and he made 8 dives on the Andrea Doria. Too cold for me though. When he does the deep dives, I am regulated to support diver, where I have to hang at 20 to 30 feet with tanks for them to decompress and to keep an eye on them. Needless to say, I am usually surrounded by black tip sharks, so I have had my fill of sharks.
Thank you! And I hope you get back to doing some diving soon! We are hoping to take a short trip to Grand Cayman in the next year. I can't wait to get some pictures down there. Espeially at sting ray city.
