About the Course
During the PADI Deep Diver course, you'll learn how to plan deep dives, manage your gas supply and how to identify and manage narcosis.
When you dive below 18 metres, there are special safety considerations. If you're ready to expand your boundaries, a PADI Instructor will help you gain the skills and confidence to explore to a maximum depth of 40 metres.
You'll learn about buddy contact procedures, safety considerations and buoyancy control at depth.
This course is an absolute must if you plan to do your Wreck Diver Speciality or have a boat/liveaboard dive coming up.

After the course...
If you're interested in exploring beyond recreational limits, ask your instructor about technical diving. "Tec" diving attracts experienced divers who enjoy a challenge, like dive equipment and want to go places other divers cannot. We can sign post you to other training schools that deliver these courses close to home.
If you liked this course and haven't already why not take the Underwater Navigator speciality diver course. This coupled with the Night Diver course add all the extra dimensions you'll need on a deep dive in waters at home or abroad.
Fancy exploring a wreck at depth - then your next step is the Wreck Diver speciality course.
Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Certain health conditions, medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a doctor before diving.
Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a doctor’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. You can find this on the About page of our website under 'key info'. Only medical professionals can give clearance to dive. In the case of the UK this is a specialist area and you may need to speak to a HSE Approved Medical Examiners of Divers (AMEDs)
If you (or your doctor) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN) or a HSE AMED.
