PADI Boat Diver
Specialty Course

From $299.00

Duration 1 Day

Boats! We all love them, they take us to where we can see the best stuff, catch the best Crayfish or take photographs of the most colourful corals, but how much do you know about the boat?

The PADI Boat Diver Specialty Course gives you the opportunity to meet the skipper in the wheelhouse where it all happens, talk to the Crew and find out how it all works. You may even get to help the Skipper choose the dive site! There is a lot to learn on the Boat Diver Specialty and the next best part? You can’t REALLY experience all aspects of Boat Diving, without Diving! A great way to get out, do a couple of dives with one of Perth Scuba’s awesome Instructors and pick up a whole heap of knowledge – all in one day! * Some knowledge reviews required.

  • Tuition
  • PADI Boat Diver Specialty Manual
  • 2 Boat Dives
  • Air Fills (for entire course)

Who should take this course?

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.

What will you learn?

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.
