Recreational diving allows people to descend to 130 feet under the water. PADI defines deep diving as any dive that exceeds a depth of 60 feet. Amazing rock and reef formations, different fish species, and most shipwrecks are found on deep dives. Students will learn about the extra precautions and equipment which are needed to safely make deep dives. They will also learn more about why colors fade at depth, why air is consumed faster, and how to respond to nitrogen narcosis. Divers refamiliarize themselves with how to determine safe dive times and proper techniques for completing safety stops.
