Be the scuba diver everyone wants to follow because you know where you are and where you’re going. The PADI Underwater Navigator course fine-tunes your observation skills and teaches you to more accurately use your compass underwater. If you like challenges with big rewards, take this course and have fun finding your way.

The Underwater Navigation Diver Course has two parts:

  • 3 x Open Water Dives to practice methods to estimate distance underwater, compass navigation while making at least five turns, marking or relocating a submerged object or position from the surface, and underwater map making.

The course takes place over 2-3 days.
