PADI Boat Diver Course

Are you ready for your PADI Boat Diver Course?

As you travel a long your path as a diver, there will be times when you want to go deeper, whether this is to inspect a wreck, or look at that marine life that is just out of reach.  The Deep Diver Speciality Course is the way to go, enabling you to dive to the depth of 40 metres. We will go through the safety aspects of deep diving, air consumption rates and other important factors pertaining to this type of diving.

Outline of the PADI  Boat Diver Course:

You will receive your crew-pack when you enrol on the PADI Boat Diver Course.  This will give you plenty of time to study the manual, watch the DVD and complete the knowledge reviews.

When you attend the theory session, you will review your knowledge reviews with your Instructor and the Instructor will be able to answer any questions you may have.

During the classroom session, you will discuss boat etiquette, how to enter and exit the boat, what to do when you first enter the boat and how and where to stow your dive equipment, whether this be on a Ridge Inflatable Boat (RIB) or a large Liveaboard.

Boat terminology will be reviewed, so you understand what is being said in the boat briefing and dive briefing.

The procedures for entering and exiting the water from different types of boats: from RIBs to Liveaboards.

You will look at what type of equipment will be stowed on the boat and where it might be stowed, and any equipment you may need for boat diving.
