Portuguese term or phrase: Merguladores espeleológicos
Seria speleo diving?
Luana
cave divers
Explanation:
Although speleo divers is also used
(see:
Speleo-divers meeting and historical exibition;
September, 2000 Speleo divers from SOB descended to Rakin ponor, dived 29 m deep, increasing the cave depth do 285 m. Rakin ponor is now the deepest cave in Serbia.)

the term 'cave divers' is used more often.

(I used to have a web-site called "Cave Divers Corner". Since it hasn't been updated in over a year I decided to delete the stagnant pages.
This doesn't mean that you can't find any information on cave diving here. Well, I guess it really means you can't.

If you feel the need to go into an underwater cave, you need to get your head examined. Cave diving is the worlds most dangerous sport, failure to perform it properly can be fatal - if you fuck up you can die. This does not mean I'm against the hobby, I just don't believe people who claim there's such a thing as "safe cave diving" - that's like saying "almost pregnant," it's just not true. Don't be fooled by the BS that some training agencies espouse, cave diving (and technical diving in general), is not for everyone. People who have no business participating in the sport die each year.)

Hope it helps
