    If you want to dive in Florida then you'll need to get an OC cave diving ticket and then a CC one (unless you join the CDG whose card seems to allow you to do whatever you like - sort of the "Platinum Card" of cave diving).

    I note the reference to Linley Caverns earlier in the thread as being suitable for Rebreather diving. This site is about 10 minutes from my home.
    Are there any links or sites where I might find out more information on depths and profiles etc. that either of you could recommend.

    There's currently 2.5 km of line in the mine complex with a maximum depth of 55 m and penetration of over 1 km. Visibility is problematic in the near reaches due to infilling work conducted by the local council following a collapse. There has been a change of landowner recently so access is an issue. The land around the entrance is popular with local youths who will steal your gear, break into your car and set a fire inside the mine when you are diving.

    PM me your email address and I'll try to help further.
