PADI Deep Diver Specialty Course

Ocean Quest's comprehensive Deep Specialty training will improve your skills & awareness while deep diving

Course Overview

The PADI Deep Specialty course will give you the experience and confidence to dive to depths up to 130 ft / 40 m.

There are many new and exciting things to see in deeper water such as walls, wrecks, deep water marine life such as cloud sponges and much more! The Deep Specialty can also be stepping stone in preparation to technical diver training.

Outside of overhead environment diving, deep diving imposes the highest risk to scuba divers. When done correctly, deep diving can be very safe, however, diving deep without proper training, experience and guidance can be extremely dangerous.

By taking your PADI Deep Diver training through Ocean Quest, you can be assured that you will receive expert training and mentorship along with an honest assessment of your diving abilities to ensure that you are ready to dive to the deep diving limits of recreational diving.
