Much of the world’s best scuba diving is accessible only by boat. Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged dozens, the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will benefit you because boats in various parts of the world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto the dive site.

 

The Boat Specialty course has two main components:
  • Knowledge development (studied online, independently prior to the first open water dive) to give you an introduction to diving from boats,from small inflatables to large liveaboards.
  • You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat in the local area and learn:
    • Boat terminology.
    • Boat diving procedures and etiquette, including how to enter and exit, and where to stow your gear.
    • Boating safety, including how to locate safety equipment.

The course is run on demand and according to the boat schedule.

Equipment rental is free of charge for this course.
