2 DAYS – 4 DIVES – EXPLORE THE DEEP
There’s something exciting and mysterious about deep dives that attracts divers. After your first few dives, you might want to explore dive sites that are slightly deeper than 18 meters. Many exciting dive sites lie in deeper waters and the Deep Specialty will teach you how to get to 40 meters safely and with confidence. Being a deep diver might open new opportunities for deeper wrecks, coral-encrusted walls, reefs, shark dives and many other exhilarating options.
The fun part
You will gain the knowledge, skills and techniques needed to conduct dives to 40 meters. You have probably learned about diving physics and physiology during your open water course but deep diving is where is really matters:
As you drop below 18 meters, your air consumption increases and your no-compression time decreases. Buoyancy declines and you might even begin to feel the effects of nitrogen narcosis. None of these are hard to deal with as long as you know how you can manage them. Getting narced (diving lingo) is an impairment of your thinking processes caused by breathing nitrogen under pressure. People experience nitrogen narcosis differently. Some describe it as feeling drunk, or being really slow while others become a bit panicked or scared. Narcosis isn’t usually serious or overdramatic and disappears as soon as you ascent.
What you will learn
Upon completion, you will earn the Deep Diving Specialty certification.
This specialty course also count towards the prestigious Master (Scuba) Diver rating.
