The lure of the deep can be hard to resist. While there is undoubtedly more light and generally more life in the shallows, there is something about deeper waters that calls to many a diver. With most recreational training agencies putting a limit of 30m on certification, what do you do if you want to explore a wreck, drop off or look for marine life past that?? Who wants to miss out on a dive to the Rosalie Moller just because she lies that little bit past 30m. Or if you are on the hunt for hammerheads and threshers at the Brothers, having some extra descent can be a real advantage. Nor do you need the masses of tanks that technical divers carry to complete this course – deep diving can be recreational with only a couple of small adjusments.
This is where the PADI Deep Specialty comes into full force. Training divers to handle dives down to 40m, you cover some of the particular considerations that should be made prior to any deep dive… are the conditions right? do I have the right kit? how long can I stay down there? These are only some of the practical areas that the Deep Specialty covers. Totaling 4 dives as well as the theory (but thankfully not exam!) you can build your knowledge, skills and confidence with the reassurance of your instructor.
Almost all of our resort and liveaboard holidays can teach a Deep Specialty in a couple of days too so it does not need to interfere with your hard earnt relaxation time. And it also deals with the thorny question of insurance. Many policies are tied to certification so if you want to safely dive deeper, the Deep Specialty can be a real saver.
