Boat Diver

Diving from a boat is fun! Imagine walking confidently around the deck of a live-aboard knowing where everything is, while feeling at ease kitting up and stowing your gear away. Dive boats definitely extend the range of your diving, taking you to new places and new experiences.

Dive boats differ everywhere, so almost every diver can benefit from the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course whether you've never dived from a boat, or if you’ve logged dozens.

You will learn about boats ranging from small inflatables to giant live-aboards; how they differ from place to place; gain experience and training from diving on boats in your local area; techniques to safely enter and exit the water; where to stow your gear safely; emergency procedures; boat safety equipment and location.
