PADI Deep Diver specialty
Pattaya PADI deep dive specialty course: Explore deeper dive sites with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 ft. Learn to manage your gas supply, go over buddy contact procedures, and buoyancy control.
The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course. Pattaya has 4 great shipwrecks at 30 metres to dive on the course plus a 40 metre dive off the back of Koh Larn to test your nitrogen narcosis levels.
If you’ve earned the PADI Advanced Diver rating or higher, and you’re at least 15 years old, you can enroll in the Deep Diver course.
Your training starts by reviewing reasons for deep diving and how important it is to know your personal limits. During four deep dives with your instructor, you’ll go over:
- Specialized deep diving equipment.
- Deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures and buoyancy control.
- Managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations.
You’ll need a dive computer along with the rest of your basic scuba equipment. A dive light, reel, SMB and slate are also recommended. All this euipment is included in your rental equipment if you don’t own it yourself.
