Why dive deep? Maybe it’s a wreck that attracts you that’s just below 30 metres, or a giant fan or a sponge on a wall reef. Whatever the reason, to scuba dive safely, with confidence at depths down to 40 metres you require additional knowledge and skills that are provided in the SDI and PADI Deep Diver Speciality programme.
Successful completion of the SDI or PADI Deep Diver Speciality will allow you to dive to a maximum depth of 40 meters, the maximum depth for Recreational Divers.
As you’ll be venturing deeper into the underwater world, there are inherent risks and a few more considerations. In the Deep Diver course you will learn how to minimise these risks and dive safely to new depths.
The initial theory will be undertaken online at the student’s convenience, with review and consolidation in the ScubaQuest Dive Centre in The National Diving & Activity Centre when you attend the Deep Diver course.
We are providing this certification through either Scuba Diving International (SDI) or PADI. Both agency certifications are equally valid and recognised worldwide. Please enquire at the centre if you require your training to be through a specific agency.
The Deep Diver course is completed in one weekend with a minimum of 4 dives.
One dive can be credited to this course from the Deep Dive on the SDI Advanced Adventurer Diver/PADI Advanced Open Water Diver programme. This allows completion of the Deep Diver certification in one long day with only 3 dives where daylight hours permit.
Speciality Courses are organised to fit with customer demand. Availability on specific dates will be discussed on enquiry when every effort will be made to schedule the required course into the planned forward program.
Please note: The Open Water Dive sessions at the National Diving & Activity Centre (NDAC) will be weather, water temperature and underwater visibility dependent.
