PADI Deep Diver Course

Are you ready for your PADI Deep 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  Deep Diver Course:

If you have already completed your Advanced Open Water Course, you will have completed Dive One of the Deep Diver Speciality Course already, and will therefore only have a further three dives to complete this course. It is possible to complete the remaining three training dives in one day, although there is no time limit for completion.                                                                                                      

If you are embarking on the Deep Diver Speciality Course directly after completing the PADI Open Water Course, you will have to complete all four dives. These dives need to be completed over a minimum of two days, although as before, there is no time limit for completion.   

You will also have a manual to work though and complete the knowledge reviews. Once you have completed these, your Instructor will review these with you to ensure that you have understood all aspects of the information covered. 

 Before you undertake your dives, your instructor will give you a full briefing to ensure you understand how the dives will be completed, so you feel confident and prepared.
