Deep Diver

The PADI Deep Diver specialty course is a scuba diving course which teaches you how to plan and safely dive to greater depths. Deep Divers are able to dive up to a depth of 40 meters / 130 feet.


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

Course Structure

During your Deep Diver specialty course, you will learn and practice techniques for safely diving to recreational depths beyond that of the Open Water or Advanced Open Water courses. Your instructor will discuss color loss, the different equipment you will use and problem management. During your open water dives, you will practice some problem solving questions to see how greater depths can affect your judgement.

Once you have you completed the Deep Diver specialty course, you will receive a temporary Deep 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.
