Challenge yourself – start to dive deeper!

Some of the most beautiful and interesting sites lie a little deeper. The Deep Diver course provides you the skills and understanding of the procedures and risks associated with diving deeper to the recreational limit of 40m. The Deep Diver Course allows you to get a first taste of the complexities and responsibilities of deep diving before commencing technical training. Explore areas of the sea that only a small percentage of divers will see, from the beautiful walls of coral reefs to the historical wrecks lying at depth.
