By taking the PADI Deep Diver course, you will learn how to plan deep dives, manage gas supply, and how to identify and manage narcosis. You will also be taught buddy contact procedures, safety considerations, and buoyancy control at depth.
There are special safety considerations when you dive below the depth of 18 metres/60 feet. If you want to learn more about it and go deeper to explore the marine world, then your PADI instructor will help you in gaining the skills and confidence required for going to a maximum depth of 40 metres/130 feet.
PADI eLearning- You can fit scuba diving lessons into your hectic schedule easily with online learning. One can complete the independent study part of this diving course at their convenience. You can work at your own pace, online or offline, using a mobile device or a computer. Talk to the instructor for in-water training or whenever there is some doubt.
eLearning time commitment: 2-4 hours
With your instructor- You will be doing four dives with a PADI instructor wherein you will practise descents, buoyancy, and safety stops. You will have hands-on exercises that will help you in discovering how colour, physical objects, and your brain are affected by deep dives.
A minimum level of health and fitness is required for scuba diving. In case you are suffering from any chronic health condition, or taking certain medications and/or had surgery recently, you will have to get written approval from a physician before diving. In order to avoid any confusion, you can simply download and review the Diver Medical Form to make sure that you will not require approval from a physician to dive. You should not ask your instructor, dive master, or dive shop staff for medical advice as they are not physicians. Only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive if you do not have a minimum level of health and fitness.
Minimum age: 15 years

You should ask your instructor about technical diving in case you are interested in exploring more than recreational limits. This diving is perfect for those experienced divers who seek challenges, like dive equipment, and want to explore the unexplored. Technical divers explore wrecks and reefs at depths below the 40 metre/130-foot recreational limit. With this specialised training, you can go to underwater caves as well along with other places that are well beyond the reach of mainstream sport diving.
Don’t move too much- In comparison with air, water is nearly 800 times denser. Thus, any movement means much more effort. Try not to move too much so that you don’t get tired fast, and some air is saved.
