As of January 1, 2017, DIVING FOR FUN will
NO LONGER be offering training services. However, we wanted to continue to provide
a list of the classes we offered along with course outlines as a reference for all our past customers.
The Deep Diver Specialty course offers you the opportunity of a lifetime - going deep to see thing others can only
dream about. A deep dive is any dive deeper than 60 feet.
To qualify for the Deep Diver course, an individual must be certified as an Adventure Diver (or have a rating equivalent to
that of an Advanced Open Water Dive and be at least 15 years of age).
You will learn deep dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and hazards. You'll also put
this knowledge to the test as you go on four open water dives that range from 60-130
feet under the supervision of an instructor. If you have done a deep dive in connection with
your Adventure Diver certification and provide us with a copy of the Adventure Log page signed
by your instructor or if you have the Advanced Open Water Diver Certification, you only need
3 more dives to complete the specialty.
Students training will need to complete the three (3) forms: Liability Release, Statement of Understanding, and
Medical Statement prior to entering the water.
There is one classroom session. The classroom session will
cover the entire Deep Diver Specialty Manual, review your knowledge review answers and prepare you for
each of the four open water dives.
- Independent Study:
Before you come to class you need to read the entire Deep
Diver Specialty Manual and complete Knowledge Reviews Part I and Part II. You will need to turn in
the knowledge reviews prior to certification. Recommended: watch the DVD.
- Open Water Dives:
The 4 open water dives are done at an area lake/scuba park or on a dive trip
(must be done over a 2 day period).
Deep Diver Specialty Manual (included in course price). Recommended: Deep Diver Specialty DVD
Length of Course:
If you have read the the Deep Diver Specialty manual, completed the knowledge reviews and watched the entire
video prior to coming to class, the classroom session should take approximately 1 hour
depending upon class size.
