Much of the world’s best scuba diving is accessible only by boat. Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged dozens, the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will benefit you because boats in various parts of the world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site.
If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 10 years old, you can enroll in the Boat Diver course.
The PADI Boat Diver course will expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large liveaboards. You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat in your local area and learn:
- Boat terminology.
- Boat diving procedures and etiquette, including how to enter and exit, and where to stow your gear.
- Boating safety, including how to locate safety equipment.
Get credit! The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you’ll want to have a surface signaling device, such as an inflatable signal tube. Having a complete spare parts kit is also a good idea. Your PADI Instructor at Fish'n Fins staff may suggest additional equipment depending on what type of boat and where your boat diving adventures take you.
Fish 'n Fins as the dive shop of your choice will be informed after you have successfully completed your online course. Once you'll visit Palau, one of Fish 'n Fins' PADI instructors will finalize the paperwork with you and take you to the FUN part of your course, SCUBA DIVING, which you can book by signing up for "PADI COURSE PRACTICAL PART". As soon as the practical part of your course is completed, our instructor will certify you and PADI will issue your dive card.
