Much of the world’s best scuba diving is accessible only by boat. This course helps you expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large liveaboards.
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.
