Deep Diver Specialty - $259

Walls, Wrecks, Marine Life!

There are many reasons to dive deep. However, this is not just a course about diving to numbers. This is a course on how to safely dive to the depths. Key life support skills, techniques, and knowledge to comfortably extend your recreational dive limits.

The Academy of Scuba's Deep Diver course is a must for any diver wishing to explore a little more and will teach you the risks and benefits of deep diving. Many interesting sights lie just beyond 18m/60ft, such as beautiful wall dives, ship wrecks, and critters that don’t come into the shallows. During the course, your instructor will cover skills like:
