Boat Diver Certification

(2 dives 1 and 1/2 days)

This course is an good overview to dive boat courtesy and safety. On you future boat dives you will wish everybody had taken it. Dive guides do.

This is a prescriptive program which requires you answer the review questions in the boat diver chapter of "Adventures in diving", PADI's Advanced Manual, before you begin the class. On day one we'll meet in the late afternoon to review the study questions before we go diving the next day. We meet early in the morning at the boat. Everything you need for the course is included in our price except the Adventures in diving Manual*, your swim suit, towel and sun block.

(*Books are not included in our price because you may already have the adventures in diving manual from an advanced class. Otherwise, you can buy them near home without being double charged. We encourage you to visit your local dive shop to buy the manuals and tables if you have time. Establishing a relationship with a local dive shop will help keep you diving in the future. If this doesn't work for you, we can provide the books (no shipping charges) when you book a class in time to receive them.)
