Safety Policy

Our safety policy

Before embarking on your adventure, we kindly ask you to carefully review this essential information. At Down to Earth, we place your safety at the forefront of our caving adventures, and we have stringent procedures in place to prioritize your well-being. However, it's important to acknowledge that this is a natural environment, and as such, it can be unpredictable, which means there are inherent risks involved.

You can rest assured that all our activities have undergone rigorous independent audits conducted to the highest standard of safety set by government and industry standards. These evaluations have included technical experts and have resulted in the certification of our operations through OutdoorsMark.

Please be aware that the activities offered by Down to Earth (DTE), including caving and walking to and from the cave locations, carry substantial risks and potential hazards, including the risk of serious/fatal injury. These risks and hazards encompass but are not limited to rockfall, falling vegetation, flooding, earthquakes, fast-flowing water, and cliffs.

Fitness Level/Mobility

Our tours are not suitable for individuals with mobility issues. Your adventure will include activities such as walking through water on uneven ground and climbing over large boulders. Thus, a reasonable level of fitness is required to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.


We kindly request that there be no consumption of alcohol, drugs, smoking, or vaping on our tours. If any participant is found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, we will decline their participation.

In Private Tours, we have the flexibility to tailor the experience to your specific group. However, in mixed tours, it can be more challenging to accommodate varying levels of fitness and ability.
