Chris Jewell is an exploratory caver and cave diver who explores new cave passages in the UK and abroad. He dives in a wide range of caves using different techniques, using everything from small cylinders in zero visibility conditions to diving chest mounted rebreathers at -100m, the nature of cave diving exploration means continually adapting to meet whatever challenges you come across.
Over the last 12 years Chris Jewell’s exploration has had him squeezing through tiny muddy underwater holes in Somerset, digging underwater in the Yorkshire Dales, developing several various sized rebreathers and leading cave diving expeditions to Spain and Mexico.
In recent years he has led expeditions to the Huautla cave system in Mexico which established the cave as the deepest in the Western hemisphere.
In June of 2018, he was one of the British cave divers who played a leading role in the 2018 Tham Luang Thailand cave rescue.
