Comments This was a true bucket list trip. I dove with Brian Kakuk in Dan’s and Ralph’s Caves on Abaco in early June 2021. Having seen images of the mind blowing crystal cave formations (see May 2012 Nat Geo or Steve Bogaerts/HP Hartmann/Brian Kakuk’s videos of Glass Factory/Pan’s Labyrinth and others:, I booked five days with Brian as soon as it seemed vaccines would make travel a reasonable risk. He maintains a full exploration oriented facility in Marsh Harbor set up to support OC and CCR cave divers. Almost all diving is side mount. While Brian teaches cave diving in the Crystal Caves, most of his clients are either experienced amateur cave divers or professional photographers/videographers.
