Expand your training and experience to greater depths. PADI’s Deep Diver specialty offers you the adventure of a lifetime – going deep to see things others only dream about. There’s no doubt about it – many of our most memorable dives are deep dives.
The surface is much farther away and harder to reach. Conditions at depth are often different and more adverse than they are in shallower water. PADI Deep Diver training enables you to experience the excitement that comes with doing something potentially hazardous and challenging, but in a way that responsibly manages the risk. Deep diving will extend your personal limits and accomplishments.
You’ll learn how to manage the added risk that comes with deep diving, and how to be prepared for emergencies and errors that can happen. You’re likely to find it a rewarding challenge that helps you improve as a diver.

Tips for Deep Diving
- Check your air and depth gauges more often than on shallower dives. You use your air from your scuba tank much faster at depth and you want to make sure that you don’t exceed your planned depth limit.
- Watch yourself and your buddy for any signs of nitrogen narcosis.
- Consider buying or renting a dive computer to help you stay within the dive’s limits. Owning a PADI ERDP-ML is also helpful.
