The professionalism of Casco Antiguo hits the big screen

In today's post we would like to recommend our readers the new movie based on real events that was released a few days ago on the streaming platform Amazon Prime Video.  

"Thirteen Lives", directed by Ron Howard and based on the 2018 rescue of a youth soccer team and their coach in the Tham Luang cave (Thailand). The film has diving as its core storytelling element in a true story that traveled around the world and features an elite cast that includes Viggo Mortensen, Colin Farrell and Joel Edgerton. 

Although he has been a diver for years, Viggo Mortensen, star of the famous Lord of the Rings saga, chose our Casco Antiguo diving school in Madrid to take specific classes and prepare for his main role as a British civilian scuba diver.  

This type of cave rescue dives require experienced divers who have been practicing and training for a long time in order to avoid risks while exploring underwater caverns. 

With over 30 years of experience in the market, Casco Antiguo continues to supply quality equipment worldwide for all types of diving activities, in particular the Sidemount and Rebreathers equipment used in technical diving, as well as specific training for their use in this type of rescues.
