In terms of collocation, what is the correct verb for the noun "caving"?
Can we say "I do caving or I am caving"? are the bold sentences OK?

I had the most amazing adventure last year. I spent an afternoon exploring the caves near my village with a group of friends. None of us had ever been caving before, so we went with my friend’s brother, who’s been doing it for ages. He supplied all the equipment and showed us what to do and how to stay safe.

I think either "been caving" or "gone caving" would work.

You meant I could say "I am caving". Right?
How about "I do caving once a month" ?
