    Cave Training Spain?

    Ola everyone!!

    A friend of mine is thinking about doing some cave training and is specifically thinking about southern Spain as he has a house there. Would anyone like to make any recommendations? I'm waiting for the onslaught of "yea go to Florida/France/Mexico".... These are of course options but as logistics would be easier for him in Spain I'd said I'd ask around..

    I know there is some sea caves etc but does anyone offer quality instruction?

    Thanks in advance
    Mark

    Re: Cave Training Spain?

    Hi there,
    I'm an American studying in the South of Spain in Alicante. I just started a cave diving class in Murcia at a dive shop called Deep Impact. The guy that runs the shop is named Volker. I've only met the guy once but he seems like a legitimate guy that knows what he's doing. When I was looking around for an instructor he was the one that responded to me the fastest and was more than willing to set up a class revolving around my schedule. I've done one little check out dive in a sea cave around there but it was just to get a taste of the training. Here is a link to his website. (Welcome to Deep Impact Diving Centre - Home). He was telling me of some inland caves that I will be checking out as my training progresses. Hope this was helpful and if you need to ask anything more feel free to contact me.
    Good luck,
    Alex Mc Allister

    Hi Alex, any info you have on inland caves near Alicante or in that region would be very much of interest. I have a fair bit of information on the Moraig, which I can provide if that would be of interest.

    regards,
    John

    hi a vote for volker, he has access to sea caves for practise and a cave system under Cartagena, he also is set up for rebreather use and mixed gas, he is off to gozo in november to train instructors, so that should show his level of expertise.
