Into the Bones of the Earth
"You know as well as I do, Professor, that man can live under water, providing he carries a sufficient supply of breathable air." -- Capt. Nemo, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, 1869
The first recorded cave dive was in France, in 1878. Since that time advances in diving physiology have given us dive tables, and the invention of SCUBA equipment has given us an untethered method of exploring the aquatic realm.
The bones of the Earth became ours to explore.
The History of Cave Diving is an interactive timeline exploring the highlights of cave diving history, legend and lore.
Dive Rite is proud to have played a part in this history.
