Why do a specialty course in Deep Diving?

The deeper you go in Scuba Diving, the more careful a diver has to be to ensure correct procedures for depression, safety stops and deep stops are performed to prevent decompression sickness.  A lot more can go wrong the deeper you go as the pressure builds up, equipment  is under greater stress and there are other things that can affect a deep diver such as Nitrogen narcosis that divers need to be aware of to ensure a safe dive.  The course helps divers become more aware of the planning and dangers of deep diving and allows you to dive at a depth safely.

Deep diving introduces a whole new level of excitement as it can be exhilarating. The ability to safely dive at deeper depths opens up a whole new variety of dive site to a recreational scuba diver. Many ship wrecks or interesting dive sites are at the edges of recreational limits and can only be safely accessed by those divers who are knowledgeable and have experience diving at depths.

What does the Course cover?

The Deep Diver course is to include four open PADI Deep Diverwater training dives, which are usually conducted over a period of at least two days. The minimum depth required for open water is between 60 to 100 feet, with no dive exceeding 130 feet. The instructor ensures that all dives are conducted within the no-decompression limits, with deeper dives being conducted first.
