What is the Deep Diver Specialty Course?

The SSI Deep Diving Specialty Course can be taken by anyone holding the Open Water License and any level beyond and allows you to dive around the world to a depth of 40m.

With the Open Water Course you get certified to dive to a depth of 18m, and teaches you the skills needed to dive safely.

While diving at 18m is great, there is often a lot that can still be seen in deeper waters, and so adding expanding your ability to be able to dive to 40m is a huge benefit to exploring many of the dive sites around the world.

It is also of benefit to anyone that has an Advanced Wreck Specialty since it allows you to get further inside the wreck when penetrating. 

During this course you’ll learn the additional safety considerations involved with deep diving, simulate emergency decompression, and experience Nitrogen Narcosis stronger than ever before.

The course can be completed by anyone holding an Open Water Diver Certification that is medically fit and aged 15 or more.

padi-deep-diverAll diving theory takes place at our Beach Bar and Restaurant unless otherwise requested, with a maximum ratio of 4 students to 1 instructor. 

If smaller instruction is desired, please request this by email and we are happy to arrange - we often have people enjoying their honeymoon on Koh Tao who would prefer a more personalized trip. 

Likewise, we often get divers that prefer smaller groups. 

Whatever the reason - no problem!!! Simply let us know and we can help you out!

What's Next?

The Deep Diving License certifies you to dive around the world and explore recreational dive sites at any depth. 

After having achieved this qualification there are a few routes to continue.

Firstly, you may decide to continue Fun Diving with us, and continue using Nitrox. All ex-students receive a 20% discounted rate on all continuing dives that they do with us, as a way of us saying thanks!

Secondly, you may decide to continue learning more about the various environments in which we dive by pursuing the corresponding Specialty Diver Coursethe most popular of these being the Wreck Diver Specialty, which certifies you to penetrate wrecks, and the Enriched Air Nitrox Specialty, which allows you extend your No-Decompression Limits and dive safer with the use of increased percentages of Oxygen in your tanks.

With both of these last two options, we also like to say thanks for completing the Wreck Diver Course with us, and offer 10% Discount from all continued dive courses.
