PADI DEEP Diver Speciality COURSE

PADI Deep Diver

Who should take this course?

The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.

If you’ve earned the PADI Adventure Diver rating or higher, and you’re at least 15 years old, you can sign up for your Deep Diver course today.


“Absolutely chuffed with how this weekend has gone, I’m filled with absolute gratitude towards you and Robin for sharing your knowledge with me and giving me such first-class tuition. Thank you so much!” 


Open Water & Dry Suit Diver Student


Your training starts by reviewing reasons for deep diving and how important it is to know your personal limits. During four deep dives with your instructor, you’ll go over:

  • Specialised deep diving equipment, including redundant air supplies.
  • Deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures and buoyancy control.
  • Managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations.
Where is the course held?

We can use inland dive sites to complete the Deep Diver Speciality, however we can also conduct the course in the sea here in the UK or aboard when combined with one of our trips. Please get in touch to discuss options for your course.

What scuba kit will you use?

You’ll need a dive computer along with the rest of your basic scuba equipment. We will also be using a redundant air supply, either a single cylinder and pony or a twinset. A dive torch and slate are also recommended. If you are unsure if your equipment set up is suitable for deep diving please contact us and we can discuss this with you and make recommendations for you to consider before, during and after the course.

Hidden Depths Scuba School run two weekly pool dives around Bristol, primarily for scuba training, but also open to club members
