The Fun Part

Have you dived on the Lonsdale or Nepean walls, and upon reaching your maximum depth of 30m gazed on down the wall and wondered what lies beneath you? This is your way to explore further and find out what there is to be seen at the limits of recreational diving!

 Becoming a PADI Deep diver is essential if you want to dive on some of the best ship wrecks Victoria has to offer, found out in the ships graveyard.

  After completing this course you will be certified to dive to 40m anywhere in the world.

What You Learn

  • Techniques for diving in the deeper range of 18-40 metres/ 60-130 feet
  • Deep scuba diving equipment considerations
  • Experience in planning, organizing and making at least four deep dives under the supervision of your PADI Instructor
  • All boat fees and stage tank hire included in cost

Your Next Adventure

Many shipwrecks and beautiful wall dives are often found in deeper water. That’s why the PADI Deep Diver course is a natural companion to the PADI Wreck Diver course. Sometimes you can take these two specialties concurrently.

Other training to consider is the PADI Enriched Air Diver course on your way to PADI Master Scuba Diver.
