cave diving in Spain

Postby pink » Aug 17, 2007 4:36 am

Hi guys,

could you provide me some general info about cave diving in Spain? Do I need to have some permissions from Spanish authorities or is it free? Some interesting places to visit? (Pozo Azul) etc.? I do appreciate any information.

thanx

Although not on a diving trip, a few years ago I did go caving in Cueva Del Agua, near Sortres in the Picos de Europa, a well-known cave as far as UK cave diving abroad goes. There was no need to ask permission to visit this or any other caves in the area.

You may possibly get some information from the Cave Diving Group's website. (This is the British Cave Diving Group)

Of course Spanish cavers or cave divers would be more helpful but I don't know if any log on to this Forum.

Have a look at http://forums.caves.org/viewtopic.php?t=5173&highlight=.

The person who posted this may be of help to you. Jason, mentioned in that posting, you may also be able to contact through the CDG's website (he's a Brit cave diver).
