Looking for the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite cave diver or wanna be cave explorer? We’ve got you covered.

FL, US December 14, 2021–Begin your journey into the dark recesses of underwater caves with GUE’s new cave diving book, Deep into Cave Diving: GUE Technique and Methodology. This new edition goes deep into the history of cave exploration, takes a close look at the beginning of cave diving, and explains the GUE cave diver training program. Whether you’re dreaming of learning to cave dive or have been exploring caves for years, this entertaining and educational book needs to be in your diving library. 

So what’s included in the cave manual? 

  • The Birth of Cave Diving
  • Intro to Cave Diver Training
  • GUE: A Unified System
  • Cave Diving Fundamentals
  • Dive Planning
  • Managing Breathing Gas Supplies
  • Emergency Situations
  • Hazards in the Cave Environment
  • Accident Analysis Revisited
  • Ecology, Conservation, & Landowner Relations
  • The Dynamics of Underwater Survey, Modeling, & Cartography
  • Understanding Cave Formation and Development

“My background is physics, and so I went a little more in-depth into gas planning, and then we added things like sidemount and rebreather diving in the cave environment to the book,” said GUE’s cave administrator, Kirill Egorov. “So it’s supplemental to GUE classes and is also beneficial to people who have been cave diving for years, GUE or not.”

PRESS RELEASE

FL, USA (June 8th, 2022)–As a way to empower the next generation of divers, Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) created the NextGen Scholarship, which will provide a year of training and other benefits to deserving divers on their quest for excellence. 

Through the generous donation of course spaces from GUE instructors, one year of tuition-free GUE training is made available to divers. These course spaces include the majority of GUE’s curriculum, and with a generous travel budget, dedicated support from a NextGen Mentor, and a new set of gear from Halcyon, scholarship recipients are able to undertake GUE training in the locations and environments they’re most passionate about. In exchange for this support, scholars will provide both written and video documentation of their year as a NextGen scholar and take part in a NextGen presentation at the next GUE conference following their scholarship year.

If you’re a certified diver who is enthusiastic about pursuing further education, interested in exploration and conservation, and ready for a year of new adventures, learn more about the requirements and how to submit an application here. Applications close July 1st, 2022.
