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 your dive site.
What will you learn?
The PADI Boat Diver course will expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large liveaboards. You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat in your 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.
What scuba gear will you use?
All equipment and cylinder fills are included in the price of your Advanced Open Water course where needed. However, at this stage in your diving, being a Boat Diver is a time where you should consider purchasing specialised bits of diving equipment – such as a DSMB, a spares kit and a gear bag. Pop into our dive centre for help & advise on choosing the right equipment for you and your style of diving.
It is a requirement that you have your own mask, snorkel and neoprene boots for health & safety reasons.
*This course fee only covers your online training, assessments and certification card. Practical training fees, dives, dive equipment and logbook are available at additional fees via Coast2Coast Scuba (please contact us to book onto your practical training).
