DEEP DIVER PADI Deep Diver Course

 

The PADI Deep Diver Course with THE SCUBA SHOP

The Fun part

Explore deeper dive sites with confidence at depths down to 130 ft. Learn to manage your gas supply, go over buddy contact procedures, and buoyancy control.

 Description

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 60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever the reason is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.

If you’ve earned the PADI Adventure Diver rating or higher, and you’re at least 15 years old, you can enroll in the Deep Diver course.

Academic

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 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 other safety considerations.

 

Equipment

You’ll need a dive computer along with the rest of your basic scuba equipment. A dive light and slate are also recommended. Your PADI Instructor or local dive center staff may suggest other gear appropriate for local deep diving.

Getting Started

Get a PADI Deep Diver Crew-Pak that includes your manual and video by visiting the Scuba Shop to enroll in the course. Read the manual and watch the video before meeting with your PADI Instructor to plan your deep diving adventures.

Your Next Adventure

 Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water. That’s why the PADI Deep Diver course is a natural companion to the PADI Wreck Diver course. Sometimes you can take these two specialties concurrently.

 Other training to consider is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver.
