PADI ReActivate/Scuba Review

Boat Diver only $160.

Diving off a boat offers you the opportunity to dive on sites that can't be reached from shore.  Learn boat terminology, how and where to stow your gear, prevent seasickness and be able to identify and locate safety equipment. 


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.


The PADI Boat Diver course teaches you about the advantages and ease of diving from a boat. You'll practice boat diving techniques 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.
