Cave diving in Thailand has grown in popularity over the last few years
with the discovery and exploration of many new systems both in southern
and northern provinces. Phuket is centrally located to access the caves
down in the south both in the Khao Sok National Park, Trang and Krabi. Recently
widely profiled dives have been conducted in both Sra keow Cave and Song
Hong Cave to extreme depth sub 150m with penetrations over 1km linier distance.
We are finding more and more caves in each region and its now becoming accessible
by those who are full cave trained.
Pro-Tech offer Training upto full cave diver thease classes are normally
conducted in Khao Sok National Park north of Phuket, Thailand. This area
is covered with Limestone and gives the diver a perfect opportunity to
explore amazing freshwater cave systems in a very unique environment.
This extremely remote location is protected and has remained untouched
and un-spoilt by tourism thus providing a real place to unwind and explore
virgin dive sites not visited by the masses.

with the most famous one being Pra Daeng. Huge stalagtites and formations,
good visibility and low flow are amongst the benefits of this fantastic
playground. Courses from Beginner to Cave CCR are available. We can also
organize guided cave dives for certified divers please email for the costs.

Cave students can opt to combine certification levels to suit their time
frame. Combination courses can be run on request, schedules permitting.

cave system could be one of the deepest cave dives in the world, therefore
is only accessible by very experienced cave divers.
