As an Adventure Open Water Diver, you’ve been confined to a maximum operational depth of 18 meters. Sure there’s a lot too love in that range, but 18 meter is only just scratching the surface of what diving has to offer you. There’s a mystique to the deep and when you’re a new diver just breaking through that 60-foot barrier feels like you’re pioneering in the spirit of Jules Verne and the Nautilus. The allure of going deep doesn’t end when you’ve been there once. There are wrecks, unique coral and fish—sights you won’t find anywhere else. Ask experienced deep divers and you’ll hear the enthusiasm in their voices as well as the respect for the serious nature of deep diving.
In the PADI Deep Diver course you’ll learn about the physiology of pushing beyond the 100-foot range. Under the supervision of instructors who have the training and experience to guide you, you’ll venture into the deep water and discover first hand what’s there. After completing the course you will be prepared to plan deep dives down to the recreational limit of 130 feet and you’ll know how to manage the special challenges of being there.
