Speaking Sidemount Cover 1920x480 (Ep25).jpg

When it comes to the history of sidemount diving, all roads lead back to the UK and the sump divers of the Cave Diving Group or CDG. The CDG gained world-wide attention and recognition following their stellar contribution to the Thai Cave rescue.

In this week's episode kindly sponsored by XDEEP, I interview Michael Thomas. Mike is the Training Officer for the Somerset Section of the Cave Diving Group (CDG) and a TDI Sidemount and Cave Instructor.

Mike and I go deep into:

  • his background in diving

  • the CDG, their approach to cave diving, training and equipment

  • the differences between cave, mine and wreck diving

  • the KISS Sidewinder rebreather

  • Mike's recent discovery of Roman artifacts in Wookey Hole

and much more...
