nsscds.org is on the move

You may have noticed the nsscds website has been intermittantly unavailable over the last few weeks.  Our webhosting company was not able to satisfactorily resolve the problems they have with their server, so we are in the process of switching to a new hosting company.  During the transition there will probably be broken links and other issues.  If you find a broken link or other problem, please send an email with a description of the problem to webmaster@nsscds.org and to nsscds.org@gmail.com.

Thank you for your patience.

An American Tragedy

An American Tragedy
Written By: Joe Citelli NSS-CDS Chairman


On Christmas Day 2013 a father and son lost their lives while embarking on an ill thought out, poorly planned diving expedition to Eagles Nest Cave in Hernando County Florida.  The 32 year old father and his 15 year old son ventured into what is considered an extremely advanced technical cave system and it claimed both their lives.  Or did it?


NSS-CDS Webinar on cavern and cave diver training


This webinar is about one hour long. The NSS-CDS training director presents a narrated Powerpoint presentation discussing the basics of cavern and cave diver training.

NSS-CDS Mentors/Guides

NSS-CDS Mentors/Guides

The NSS-CDS board of directors in conjunction with the NSS-CDS training committee is developing a list qualified cave divers who we feel are properly trained to act as guides and/or mentors for cave divers who want to dive with a guide or mentor.

Volunteers needed

The NSS-CDS is looking for volunteers for the Event Committee. This committee would work with David Jones and would perform activities needed for the representation of the NSS-CDS at functions like Beaneath the Sea, DEMA and other social events where the NSS-CDS may have a booth. 

Please contact David Jones for additional information +1 (727) 510-2342
