The PADI Deep Diver specialty is a safe, supervised introduction to deeper diving down to 40m. Extending your diving limit to 40m is exciting and challenging and the rewards are great. The course will teach you how to plan deep dives, navigate and orientate yourself at depth, the correct use of descent lines and will simulate emergency decompression stops.
This certification will open up more dives for you, is required by most insurance policies when diving deeper than 30m and counts towards your Master Scuba Diver rating.
After some self study using the PADI Deep diver manual you will complete four dives, over a weekend, with your PADI instructor. These will be completed over 2 days (usually 1 weekend) to gain your PADI Deep Diver certification.
During these dives you will complete specific exercises to help you plan and conduct deep dives independently. Skills covered will include deep descents, navigation at depth, emergency decompression stops and tests at depth.
Course Duration & Schedules
Having completed the self study from the course manual you will complete your four open water dives at the National Diving & Activity Centre at Chepstow over a weekend.
