Boat Diver

The PADI Boat Diver specialty course is a scuba diving course which teaches you how to safely dive from a boat.


In order to enroll in the PADI Boat Diver course, you need to be at least 15 years old and a certified PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent).

Course Structure

During your Boat Diver specialty course, you will learn and practice techniques for diving from a boat. Your instructor will discuss the different locations of the boat and how to correctly assemble your gear for the dive. You will also learn how current, wind and waves can affect your boat diving experience.

Once you have you completed the Boat Diver specialty course, you will receive a temporary Boat Diver certification card, which you can start using right away! You will receive your permanent card about 30-45 days after you have been certified. 

Required Equipment

You will be required to have your own mask, fins, and snorkel for the duration of the course. We would also recommend that you have a suitable exposure suit – a wetsuit during the winter months to protect your body from the cold and a lycra, or skin suit for the summer months to protect your body from jellyfish stings and scrapes.
