Projects 2002 This part of the EKPP website chronicles the exploration dives in the Gourneyras that took place February and March 2002. The first trip was initially planned just as a test dive but luckily we able to extend the line. We will continue with this exploration 2003. The cave is located in the south of France in the department named Herault. It has been prevoiusly explored by Ludovic Giordano, Reinhard Buchaly and other cave divers to around 1300 m (4265 ft). This cave is on private property and should only be dived with a permit by the owner. This helps to secure the access for future diving projects and also means that results will be put together. As to date, we have no information from the previous expeditions. The previously laid lines did not even have distance markers for measuring the cave. Getting there is not easy. The last 20 minutes are on a rocky road and a small bridge which is pretty hard to pass. Read more by clicking the button for full project reports.
