The PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatable’s to large liveaboards. You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat in your local area and learn:
You can start by reading the PADI Boat Diver Manual and watching the Boat Diving video in preparation for meeting with your instructor to schedule the boat dives. Stop by our Dive Centre to enrol in the course and get your Boat Diver Crew-Pak and start learning.
Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll want to have a surface signalling device, such as an inflatable signal tube. Having a complete spare parts kit is also a good idea. Our PADI Instructor and our dive centre staff may suggest additional equipment depending on what type of boat and where your boat diving adventures take you.
