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
