At Pro Venture we consider that colour, shape, sounds, shade, form and texture all define part of the caving experience, equally as much as the physical effort of negotiating and squeezing through underground passageways. Caves are a scarce natural resource and as such, conservation is only second in priority to your safety.
At Pro Venture we consider that colour, shape, sounds, shade, form and texture all define the caving experience, equally as much as the physical effort of negotiating and squeezing through underground passageways. Caves are a scarce natural resource and as such, conservation is only second in priority to your safety.
For this reason we consciously take the time to explain the processes by which the cave environment develops and forms. By doing this, we are imparting to you an understanding of the geology and the environment you are moving through. The drip feeding of information is an intrinsic part of our approach to delivering exciting but informative caving trips for beginners.
A beginner caving experience with us, will actively aim to engage you in the whole journey – we won’t simply ‘tow’ you around a cave system -unless you ask!
The imparting of (cave) information is balanced against the correct amount of physical challenge, the distance travelled underground, the perceived aspirations of the clients, and any hazards or weather conditions that may affect plans while underground.
Introductory beginner caving trips take place in horizontal or vertical cave systems. In vertical systems the use of a rope and harness will be required to safeguard some sections of steeper or vertical cave passageway.
The perfect introduction to the world of caving

This will help us determine an appropriate location. Just prior to the event we will require equipment sizes for suits and boots. We will also suggest a list of personal clothing items and other useful items to make the day more comfortable.
