PADI DEEP DIVER
The lure of the deep. After your first few scuba dives, you'll soon want to explore deeper. It could be that wreck just beyond 30 metres or you are diving a reef wall and all the interesting stuff just seems to be that little deeper. Maybe it is just the explorer in you. Whatever the reason is, if you want to dive safely and with confidence to a depth of 40m, the PADI Deep Diver Speciality course is for you.
