After your first few scuba dives, you soon want to explore a bit deeper. There’s something exciting and mysterious about the depth that attracts dives. Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water. Also many reefs go beyond the 18M mark. That’s why the PADI Deep Diver course will be the next course on your list. With the PADI Deep Diver specialty course you will be able to experience that excitement first hand by extending your recreational depth limit to 40 metres.
Get beyond the 18M with the Padi Deep Diver Secialty course. Down there it's different, it takes additional training. This course is the opportunity to explore the deep. Scuba diving on depth is exhilarating.
The Deep Diver Specialty course offers you the opportunity of a lifetime, going deep to see things others can only dream about. During this course you'll learn Techniques for diving in the deeper range of 18-40 metres/ 60-130 feet. You will learn how to plan, set-up & execute deep dives with particular consideration to factors such as increased air consumption, temperature changes, shorter no-decompression limits, physiological effects like nitrogen narcosis, hazards and deep scuba diving equipment considerations.
You'll also put this knowledge to the test as you go on four deep dives over at least two days that range from 18 - 40 metres / 60 - 130 feet under the supervision of your PADI Instructor. By the end of the course you will be confident in your ability to safely dive deeper and understand how to avoid or deal with problems associated with deeper diving.
The course consists of a knowledge development session & 4 Open water dives which will cover:
Planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of deep diving
Risk factors and decompression-tables review
Safety stops and emergency decompression procedures
Special equipment, descent lines and buoyancy control considerations
Procedures for flying after diving and high altitude diving
Orientation to recompression chambers
Knowledge development is based on a self-study method, allowing you to study in your own time, at your own pace. Home study is backed up by an academic session with a PADI Instructor, to ensure full understanding of deep diving theory.
Open Water Dives
Students must complete 4 Open Water dives to certify as a PADI Deep Diver. Each dive has specific tasks designed to help students understand the safety techniques, equipment selection and physiological aspects of deeper diving. Timed tasks, navigational exercises & simulated emergency decompression stops are amongst the skills completed during the 4 dives
Now that you have mastered the techniques & equipment considerations for deep diving, why not put these skills to good use during the PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course. Your extended depth limits will allow you to make limited wreck penetrations of a maximum of 40 linear meters.
