Deep Diver

  • Da Nang Scuba PADI Dive Center Vietnam PADI Deep Diver Course


    The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.

    Who should take this course?

    If you’ve earned the PADI Adventure Diver rating or higher, and you’re at least 15 years old, you can enroll in the Deep Diver course.

    What will you learn?

    Your training starts by reviewing reasons for deep diving and how important it is to know your personal limits. During four deep dives with your instructor, you’ll go over:

        • Specialized deep diving equipment.
        • Deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures and buoyancy control.
        • Managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations.

    Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.

    What scuba gear will you use?

    You’ll need a dive computer along with the rest of your basic scuba equipment. A dive light and slate are also recommended. Your PADI Instructor or local dive center staff may suggest other gear appropriate for local deep diving.

    At Da Nang Scuba we have a fully stocked retail shop offering a wide range of scuba equipment from the basics of masks and snorkels to buoyancy control devices, including dive computers and torches. Taking a course with Da Nang scuba guarantees a 10% discount on any equipment purchased from Scuba Direct or Liquid Watersports.
