Duration: 1 day
Much of the world’s best scuba diving is only accessible only by boat. Whether you’ve made many boat dives or only have experience in alternative entries this course will educate you many ways because, in various parts of the world, certain types of boats do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site, there is no need to carry heavy gear or swim long distances.
The PADI Boat Diver course will expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large live boards. You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat in your local area and learn: Boat terminology, 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 and more.
