"A Comparison of Cave and Wreck Diving"
This presentation is intended to examine several aspects of Cave Diving and Wreck Diving in an attempt to educate and invoke discussion with the audience. The lecture is designed for both experienced cave and/or wreck divers as well at those who are new or may have never participated in either. The new diver will enjoy the general overview and introduction of both types of diving while the experienced diver will hopefully walk away with some thought provoking ideas and concepts. The presentation is broken into three parts- Compare and Contrast, Standardization, and Rebreathers.
