Main Question or Discussion Point

If one was say 10 meters underwater but in a cave-like system, would you experience the same degree of water pressure compared to being 10 meters under open water? And why would this be?
Any help much appreciated, diagram attached as not sure if question makes sense

I'm not quite sure, but I think there wouldn't be any difference. Otherwise, there would be pressure difference. It is as simple as putting a object with cave into the water which is not likely to change the local pressure.

If you mean you're in a cave also filled entirely with water then yes the pressure will be the same as the pressure in a fluid is proportional to its potential energy.
