The Beginner Caving Trip With YOUCave

Despite what you’ve heard, a guided, beginner cave exploring trip with YOUCave is relatively safe to do. This does not mean that there is no way to get hurt, it just means that we’ve done our due diligence to take every precaution to keep you from injury. How do we do this?

Our guides are knowledgeable cavers who have been taking youth underground for many years. We are active members of recognized cave exploring organizations.

We are very familiar with the cave we will be taking you to. We’ve been there many times before and know what to expect. For beginner trips, we avoid water deeper than your ankle. You will have a spotter for climbs up to one body length, and avoid climbs more than a body length. While we want to encourage you to try all challenges, if something is too small for your comfort we will do what we can to avoid them.

Everyone caving with us will have the use of our helmets and headlamps. If needed, we have other equipment, such as coveralls, gloves, kneepads, and batteries, that are available for the trip. You can use as much or as little of your own equipment.

If in the unlikely event something does happen, we will be in a “911” area and close to an ER and Urgent Care services.

Don’t listen to your friend’s uncle’s brother-in-law about how dangerous cave exploring is. He’s probably never been caving and is watching too many movies or too much Youtube. For real information, ask your guide. We’re the ones who have been doing this safely for years.
