Deep Diver

After your first few scuba dives, you soon want to explore a bit deeper. There’s something exciting and mysterious about depth that attracts divers, with a whole new world of spectacular but previously-inaccessible wrecks and reefs to explore in the 30-40 metre depth range.


What Will You Learn?

You will learn the techniques and considerations for planning and successfully executing deeper dives:


- Techniques for diving in the deeper range of 18-40 metres/ 60-130 feet

- Additional hazards and considerations for deep diving and planning including increased narcosis, additional gas supply, and shorter no decompression limits

- Emergency decompression procedures

- Deep scuba diving equipment considerations

- Experience in planning, organizing and making at least four deep dives under the supervision of your PADI Instructor.


To purchase learning materials and equipment, simply contact us.


Your Scuba Gear

Scuba Leeds will provide all your basic scuba diving equipment, including: mask, snorkel and fins, a buoyancy compensating jacket that also carries your scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from, instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply, a wetsuit for pool use and drysuit and undersuit for your open water dives. It is recommended that divers have, at a minimum, their own dive computer and torch.


How Much Does It Cost?

We offer a couple of options for the PADI Deep Diver course, these are as follows:


Early Bird Special PADI Deep Diver - £165

Standard PADI Deep Diver - £195

Executive PADI Deep Diver - £275


All of these options include full equipment hire, gas fills, course materials, all training elements and your PADI certification fees. The only thing that you will have to pay on top of your course fee is transport to and from the training locations and entrance fees at the open water dive sites.


What's Next?

When diving deeper, your no decompression limits are reduced. Diving with nitrox increases your bottom time, which is why the PADI Enriched Air Diver has such great synergy with the Deep Diver program. In addition, many shipwrecks are found in deeper water, so if you’re undertaking your Deep specialty in order to explore the huge number of wrecks around the world which reside in the 30-40 metre depth range, the PADI Wreck Diver course makes for a natural companion.
