for wrecks or dives sites beyond 18m?
Do you want a more extensive knowledge
of diving theory?
Mention a "deep dive" amid a group
of divers and watch their reactions. Novice
divers who have yet to venture below 18m
want to know what it's like. More experienced
divers who have been a bit deeper chatter
with excitement. Those who have trained
to prepare themselves to venture to 40m
(the recommended deepest limit of recreational
diving), show enthusiasm tempered with respect
for the serious nature of safe deeper diving.
At any rate, there's certainly something
a bit alluring, exciting and mysterious
about going "deep".
The purpose of the PADI Deep
Diver Course is to familiarise divers with
the skills, knowledge, planning, organisation,
procedures, techniques, problems, hazards
and enjoyment of diving between the depths
of 18 and 40m. The PADI Deep Diver course
is intended to serve as a safe, supervised
introduction to deeper diving within the
limits of recreational diving. Course includes
one evening academic session, one pool orientation
session and four open water dives.
Deep diving activities and objectives, deep
diving definition and limits, developing
your personal deep diving depth limit, deep
diving equipment and techniques, breathing
techniques for deeper diving, anti silting
techniques, nitrogen narcosis, decompression
sickness and re compression chamber overview,
examining pressure-affected objects and
recording colour changes at depth, practicing
navigation at depth, and practicing using
emergency breathing equipment .
