Deep Diver Specialty

Deep diver specialty course is designed to give the diver more exposure, and training for dives to depths deeper than the open water limit of 60 feet.  It is usually conducted following the advanced open water certification.   The course is structured around four deep dives conducted over two separate diving days.  Students are introduced to the effects of Nitrogen Narcosis often for the first time, in a controlled and safe environment. We at HiTek Scuba highly recommend this course for divers that would like to learn to plan and conduct diving from depths of 80 feet to the recreation limit of 130 feet.

The Deep Diver course is one of the Pre-requisites for the DSAT Tec 40 technical diver program.

The course is made up of four open water dives and a classroom session.  Dive planning, preparation, and safety are paramount to success in this specialty diving certification.

Prerequisites are Advanced Open Water Diver AND some cold water diving experience.

Course Cost is $220 and includes all materials, the class time, and the open water dives.  By this point in a divers training it is important that they obtain their own equipment (rentals are available but having your own gear is preferred).  Deep diving specialty equipment is provided for class use.  A dive light is essential for deep diving in PNW waters.
