Much of the world’s best scuba diving is accessible only by boat. Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged dozens, the Boat Diver Specialty course will benefit you because boats in various parts of the world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site. The Boat Diver course will expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large liveaboards. You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat in your local area and learn:
-Boat diving procedures and etiquette, including how to enter and exit, and where to stow your gear
-Boating safety, including how to locate safety equipment
Prerequisites: Must be an Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver at least 10 yrs old
