PADI Deep Diver

A must for any serious diver; it gives you the necessary skills to dive deeper and also the ability to dive further into wrecks, if this is something that interests you too.

Many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water. That’s why this course is a natural companion to both the PADI Wreck Diver course & PADI Enriched Air Diver courses. We can even combine these 3 great specialities into one awesome package: “The Elite Diver”.

1. Course overview

You’ll get to complete the course over 4 dives over at least two days, with the knowledge development carried out through PADI e-Learning in your own time.

You already need to be a PADI Adventure Diver diver (or equivilent certification from another training agency), and you need to be at least 15 years old.

2. What you'll learn

You’ll learn techniques for diving in the deeper range of 18-40 metres, which takes into account deep scuba diving equipment and physiological considerations – such as gas supply managment, gas narcosis, and being able to recognise your personal limits. You’ll also be able to observe directly how deeper dives impact colour and physical objects.

You’ll experience in planning, organising and making multiple deep dives under the supervision of your PADI Instructor, and through your e-Learning study.

3. Equipment

Unlike our introductory courses, you’ll either need to provide your own scuba kit, or hire some from us for the duration of your course. If you want to look at purchasing your own, we’d be happy to help you also.

As a minimum, you’ll need a mask, snorkel, fins, buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD), scuba regulator, and the instrumentation to monitor your depth and air supply. You can hire cylinders from us, or bring your own in-test cylinders with you to be refilled at the dive site.

You’ll also need adequate exposure protection for the conditions you’ll be diving in (this could be a wetsuit or drysuit) to keep you comfortable on your dives. If you dive in a dry suit, you need to ensure you have the correct training for this too.

Some courses may require additional equipment, depending on the individual course requirements.

Any equipment you provide yourself must be in a serviced, well-maintained and safe condition. No exceptions!

4. Learning materials

We will send you any e-Learning materials needed for your specialty course, which will take you to the registration area of the PADI site. This teaches you the background information you need for your course, and allows you to study at your own pace.

You can complete this on pretty much any device with an internet connection.

Some courses also have physical learning content, which we can give you once you’re enrolled.

Ready to start?

You can book and pay for your course with us online, either for yourself or someone else. We’ll send over any e-Learning content to your email, and we can then work with you on suitable dates and times for any in-person sessions.

We have availability throughout the year, although if you have specific dates or a timeline in mind, please check with us first.

Your next adventure...

Since many shipwrecks are often found in deeper water, so you’ll almost certainly want to consider becoming a PADI Wreck Diver. This will teach you the necessary skills to safely dive these underwater wonders.

You might also want to think about the PADI Enriched Air Diver course too, where you’ll learn how to breathe EAN, or ‘nitrox’, up to 40% oxygen content. This extends your diving times, and often allows you to dive with less fatigue. 

And if you want to do both, we can even combine these 3 great specialities into one awesome package: “The Elite Diver”.
