Many divers find the lure of the deep intoxicating! Whether you are swimming along drop offs over beautiful blue water with massive Sponges and Fans or exploring deeper ship wrecks, it brings out the adventurer in all of us! The excitement doesn’t come without risks. Decreased bottom times and greater exposure to nitrogen are just a few. If this interests you then the Deep Diver Specialty is for you!
Under direct supervision by one of our highly experienced Instructors we will take you through Preparing, Planning and Executing dives in the 18m/60ft to 40m/130ft depth range. The course consists of knowledge development, equipment considerations and planning. All culminating in 4 deep dives!
