Thread: Cova de Sa Gleda cave video

    Cova de Sa Gleda cave video

    I would like to share short video made during dives in "european cenote" - Cova de Sa Gelda cave located in Mallorca, Spain.
    Five Tres Presidentes rebreathers were used with one spare - all performed flawlessly.
    Rebreathers were feed from stage tanks with EAN45 - maximum depth is 25m with average about 10m, so no deco gases were neccessary.
    2x12l bailout tanks allowed penetration of the farthest passages of over 10km long cave

    Wow! I really like that cave. The speleotherms remind me of Nohoch and a couple other highly decorated Mexican caves. I didn't realize they had similar caves in Spain. Good job!

    We brought all equipment by car and ferry. Rest of the group came by plane - two days of driving vs two hours flight
    On Mallorca you can rent only thick short awful 12l tanks. Air fills beyond holiday seasons are hardly available.
    We wanted to top up stage tanks containing oxygen - dive shop salesman ran away screaming

    Mallorca is full of caves - dry and flooded, however cave diving is not popular.
    Caves are located on private properties and it is not easy to get access.
    This makes the caves are little known and divers from Europe go to Mexico or Florida.
