The PADI Boat Diver makes diving easy – just take one giant step off the back and you’re in the water! During the Boat Diver class you’ll go on a open water dive, which must be – you got it – conducted from a boat. It’s a good idea, but not required, that you enroll in this program to learn the techniques and procedures for diving from different types of boats (inflatable boats, hard-hulled day boats, cabin cruisers, live-aboards, sailboats, etc.). That’s a good thing – the more boats you dive from, the more diving you to do!
As part of your PADI Boat Diver class, you'll learn about and dive on the Narcosis II.
