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.
$1250 private course for one person with full equipment.
$599 (including full equipment hire) $849 eLearning inclusive

What do I need to supply?
Purchase the eLearning from us - $250 - or pop online and grab it directly from PADI.
We’ll get you to complete a medical questionnaire. It is very important that you have no history of asthma, epilepsy, diabetes, heart or lung conditions, or chronic sinus/ear conditions. If you have any of these we will need to see a doctor’s certificate stating that you are fit to dive.
Prescription medication, surgery in the last 12 months, as well as a positive COVID-19 test, are recent additions - please make sure you are good to go on all of these - we hate disappointing people in the morning, 'cos we really want to get you diving!
