Once you have done your first few dives you often get drawn to being able to go that bit further. Quite often the less visited ship wrecks are in deeper water which prevents a lot of people being able to dive and appreciate them. The PADI Deep Diver course extends your depth limit down to 40 metres thereby enabling you to visit places where others may not be able to.
- To be a minimum of 15 years old (with written guardian consent up to the age of 18 yrs)
