Deep Diver

All About Deep Diver

There’s something exciting and mysterious about the depth that attracts divers. The Deep Diver Course is necessary for any diver wishing to explore a little more, go a little deeper, and learn the risks and benefits associated with deep diving. Many interesting sights lay just beyond open water diver training limits such as: beautiful wall dives, shipwrecks, and critters that don’t come into the shallows. The purpose of this course is to provide the necessary training to plan and execute dives that are beyond the depth range experienced during the Open Water Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver courses, specifically to a maximum depth of not greater than 130 feet. By the end of the course your knowledge, awareness, and comfort level with deep diving activities will have increased significantly.
