Last night Lanny Vogel the owner of Underworld Tulum Mexico, arrived at Flippas-n-Fins Poole last night.

His sole aim was to entertain and educate us in respect of the Cavern and Cave Diving in the Tulum Region of Mexico and there was lots of concentration going on in the crowd.

Kev from Flippas-n-Fins first met Lanny back in the late 1990’s whilst they were both starting their exploits into the areas of Technical Diving.  They have kept in touch and dived together occasionally ever since.

Flippas-n-Fins have run one trip over to Underworld which was a great success and yes we are considering running another.  So the talk from Lanny should hopefully have whetted the appetite of a few people to go back?

Lanny has a vast amount of knowledge in his very specialist area, so he started his talk with an introduction to his purpose built Dive Centre and the general area.

He then proceeded to walk us through areas of Cavern and Cave Diving both in general and at Underworld Tulum, giving many a great insight into what can actually be achieved very safely.

His talk was given along with a series of stunning images of his underwater experiences in the Caverns and Caves around the Tulum area.

We must say a big thanks to all those 20 divers attending, including one diver from as far as Exeter for this talk.

As is always our tradition following a great question and answer section we adjourned to a hostelry where the talk of Cavern, Cave and just general Diving continued.
