Dive Caching Workshop

Dive Caching Workshop!

August 28, 2014
6pm to 8pm


What Is Dive Caching?

Imagine an underwater treasure hunt…simply stated, divecaching is an underwater geocache adventure for scuba diving and snorkeling. Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which participants use navigational techniques such as GPS or compass coordinates to hide and seek out “caches” around the world. Divecaching takes geocaching one step further by putting it underwater.

There are lots of good reasons to participate in divecaching. First of all, it might get you out snorkeling or diving more often. It’s a great way to discover new dive sites and practice your dive skills in a fun and enjoyable manner. It’s a lot of fun and many people thrive on the adventure involved with hiding and finding new caches.

We created our own divecaching page on our web site, with the hopes of promoting local diving and getting people excited about scuba diving and snorkeling. We hope you have fun creating a divecache and seeking out other ones

The cache itself could be a container or a mesh bag with treasure inside. Sometimes the treasure is meant to be taken by the finder or sometimes the finder is to leave something behind for future finders. The cache could also simply be an underwater slate or wetnotes where each finder can sign their name as having found the cache.

Come join us and find out more about divecaching in Northern California and how Dive N Trips is becoming involved in this exciting aspect of diving!
