Deep Diver

Explore deeper dive sites with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 ft.



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 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/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.

Along with reviewing reasons for deep diving and the importance of knowing your personal limits, you'll learn about:

- Specialized deep diving equipment.

The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification - ask your instructor about earning credit. You may be able to get college credit for the Deep Diver course - ask your instructor.

After you get certificated with the PADI Open Water Diver, you can continue your training with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver.
