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.
The PADI Deep Diver course is one of the most popular courses for divers who have gained experience and are looking to further their skills. The course consists of 4 dives from a boat with your PADI Instructor (charter fees not included).
Simply book your course space online or give us call to book over the phone. Once your booking is completed, you'll receive an order confirmation email and then a follow up email containing an 'info pack' for the course. Please have a read and let us know if you have any questions.
Around 2 weeks before the course start date, you'll receive your PADI Deep Diver manual in the mail for the course. This must be completed entirely before the 'dive days' are due to start.
On your first course date, you'll meet us at our store where you'll be introduced to your Instructor and course-mates. Together over a tea or coffee, you'll complete some paperwork before being allocated your gear for the course. Once you're all ready, you'll head to the chosen dive locations to begin your training!
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:
Specialised deep diving equipment.
Deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures and buoyancy control.
Managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations.
At the end of the day you'll return to the store to clean and sort the equipment before the day ends. This is the same process for both days of your course!
If you have a buddy that's booked on too then awesome! If not you'll be buddied up with another course mate for the duration of the course.
We hope you'll choose us to get your PADI Deep Diver Certification! If you have any questions or specific requirements just let us know and we'll happily answer them all for you.
Our philosophy is 'over and above' at all levels (check out our online reviews on Facebook, Google or Tripadvisor) and we believe you deserve to learn in the best way possible, which is why we think our PADI Advanced Open Water course is awesome!
We believe that you deserve to learn in the best way possible.
That's why we only teach in small groups - the maximum you'll find on a course with us is 4 students to 1 instructor. This means that you get more Instructor time for personalised learning and more time in and under the water to practice your skills and explore the underwater world.
We believe that your learning experience should be as fun and accessible.
You'll receive the PADI Deep Diver manual in the mail before the course starts. You get to cover the theory at your own pace before the course starts, wherever you happen to be!
We're available for help and support via email, messenger or phone while you're learning. But, don't worry - we know that Instructor time is essential to your learning which is exactly why we have in-person theory revision sessions during the diving days too, so you can ask us anything you like in person! Best of both worlds!
You'll also find absolutely zero hidden costs.
We are totally open about what your course fees cover, so no surprises for you at the end of the day. Your fees cover the PADI homework materials, PADI registration and certification, Instructor time and logistics for the 5 dives of your course and of course a portion goes to the overall costs of a running a dive shop.
Dive equipment use is not included in continuing education courses, so you're welcome to bring your own (or ask us about epic package deals!) or you can hire from us. Course students get a 50% discount on any rental equipment needed for the duration of the course! Otherwise, all you need to bring is completed homework, lunch and your sense of adventure! Any boat / trip fees that may be related are also not included.
Top quality dive gear for you to use during your course.
Speaking of equipment we're proud to work with some of the top brands in diving, such as Scubapro and Mares, who keep us well stocked with their top quality gear that you get to dive with if you choose to hire from us!
So with us you get small groups, top quality Instruction, no hidden costs and top brand name equipment to use.
