PADI Deep Diver Training Pattaya Thailand
Explore deeper dive sites with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 ft. Learn to manage your gas supply, go over buddy contact procedures, and buoyancy control. Here at Mermnaids we have a lip of a deep hole that we can use for this deep (yet, relatively shallow) dive. On our doorstep we have wrecks that lay between 30-40 meters that are ideal for the deep diver spec.
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.
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.
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.
You may be able to get college credit for the Deep Diver course – ask your instructor.
Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification. Contact us about earning credit for other dive courses.
You’ll need a dive computer along with the rest of your basic scuba equipment. A dive light and slate are also recommended. Your Mermaids Instructor will be able to suggest gear appropriate for local deep diving.
Contact Mermaids Dive Centre for the PADI Deep Diver Thailand Crew-Pak that includes your manual and video. We can arrange the materials and get you enrolled onto the Deep Diver schedule. Read the manual and watch the video before arriving for the first training dives.
