PADI BOAT DIVER Boat diving procedures and etiquette

The PADI Boat Diver Course with AMERICAN DIVERS INTERNATIONAL

The PADI Boat Diver program makes scuba diving easy - just take a giant step off the back of the boat and you're in the water!

PADI Boat Diver

Boats and diving obviously fit together like hands in gloves. You can only reach some of the best dive sites by boat, and this is true of most places in the world. Diving from boats is also more convenient and easier than from shore in many ways, and it's great fun to spend time out on the water with your friends between dives.

While diving from a boat isn't difficult, there are some special procedures that make boat diving more fun, such as the lines you use when diving in currents. Using current lines effectively may make the difference between an easy and exciting dive, and a tiring and not-much-fun undertaking. On most dive boats, the trip leader usually explains the procedures you'll be using, but a great way to learn more is in the PADI Boat Diver Specialty Course.

The Boat Diver specialty shows you the broad, basic procedures used when diving from boats. You learn about using current lines, different entry and exit procedures, and the organization of getting kitted up for the dive. Besides these procedures, you also learn useful information like how to pack for boat diving, avoiding seasickness, boating basics and boating emergencies.
