As Floridians, we are surrounded by karst terrain and as a result, limestone, dolomite, and gypsum minerals create beautiful caverns that we can explore! The Florida springs aren’t the only place you will find these beautiful structures. They also exist in other parts of the world including volcanic walls and limestone coast lines.
Although extremely beautiful, these environments take caution and appropriate training. Knowing how to explore these environments correctly is the key. This course is a perfect introduction to these amazing caverns and will give you all the tools needed to be safe and have a fun day in the cavern zone!
