Diving deep is not a goal by it self. You don't make a deep dive just to go deep,
but as a means to an end. As a Deep diver you have access to new dive sites that
lie below 60 or 100 ft (depending on if you are an Adventure or Advanced diver today),
and allows you to extend some of the activities you enjoy to new depths. Through
deep diving you can observe aquatic life that doesn't live in shallow water, visit
wrecks that rest in deeper water, as well as shoot photographs. In some places,
deep diving makes it possible to drift effortlessly past deep water reefs, and in
other areas, you might collect or recover objects that were lost in greater depth.
Those are just five examples of many possibilities when making deep dives.
The Deep diver course is designed to be an introduction to deep diving and help
you as a diver to develop the necessary skills, knowledge and techniques to safely
participate in deep diving activities.
