Many dive sites are accessible only by boat. That’s why training and experience in boat diving are essential for nearly every dive. The PADI Boat Diver specialty is a great way to get that training and experience while under the direction of a PADI Instructor.

Topics include:

  • Boat terminology
  • Boat diving procedures and etiquette

  • How to stow your gear
