Who should take this course
The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 meters, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 meters, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.
If you’ve earned the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver rating or higher, and you’re at least 15 years old, you can enroll in the Deep Diver course
What will you learn
Your training starts by reviewing reasons for deep diving and how important it is to know your personal limits. During four deep dives with your Deep Blue Divers PADI Instructor, you’ll go over:
Specialized deep diving equipment.
Deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures and buoyancy control.
Managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations
Get Credit! You may be able to get college credit for the Deep Diver course – ask your Deep Blue Divers PADI instructor.
Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your Deep Blue Divers PADI instructor about earning credit.
What scuba gear will you use
You’ll need a dive computer along with the rest of your basic scuba equipment. A dive light and slate are also recommended. Your Deep Blue Divers PADI Instructor may suggest other gear appropriate for local deep diving.
