Cave dive – Cave dive in Slovenia

  • February 28, 2010

It?s possible to dive in all Slovenian rivers and lakes with an exception of Lake Bohinj. Diving is popular in Lake Bled, Ankaran, Portorož and many other tourist spots in Slovenia. But this time we aren?t talking about normal diving – we are going to talk about special type of diving – cave dive.

Cave dive is a special type of technical diving, where scuba equipment is used to enable the exploration of the caves, filled with water.

Unfortunately, according to professionals, cave diving isn?t for everyone. To be more exact, experts estimate that less than one percent of the recreational divers possess the knowledge, skills, attitude and judgment needed to cave dive safely. But, if you have knowledge, skills, attitude and right judgment, then cave diving can be a great experience.

Since this is a blog about Slovenia, I have to tell you something about cave diving in Slovenia. Cave dive is possible in Postojna cave, Škocjan caves and in a tunnel in Wild Lake (Divje jezero) near Idrija. There are very little information about cave dive in Slovenia on the internet, because there are only few people interested in that (well, many people are interested in that, but most of them give up when they find out what they need for cave diving). If you would like to cave dive in Slovenia, then you can contact Slovenian diving federation (Slovenska potapljaška zveza; Celovška cesta 25, 1000 Ljubljana; [email protected]; telephone number: +386 (0)1 433 93 08) or visit Noriksub?s webpage for cave dive courses (or contact them: telephone number: +386 (0)1 434 07 53; [email protected]) and ask for details about cave diving in Slovenia.

If diving is yours and your partner?s passion, you can organize an underwater wedding (ask at Noriksub group). You can contact Slovenian diving federation and Noriksub group for diving in Slovenian rivers, lakes and in the sea as well.
