Underwater Navigation Course

Wouldn't it be great to be able to eliminate long surface swims at the end of a dive?

The course is designed to reduce confusion and anxiety and increase effectiveness of planning a dive. Underwater navigation is a particularly useful skill when participating in specialized diving activities: Limited Visibility, Night diving, Wreck diving, Deep diving and Search & Recovery. Being able to navigate better will also help avoid buddy separation and help conserve air.

Course Goals:

  • Develop practical knowledge of underwater navigation.
  • Increase diving skills.
  • Enable divers to plan, organize and make dives using underwater navigation skills.
  • Improve diving ability and provide additional supervised experience.

    Course Requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Be an Open Water Diver or equivalent.
  • Provide all personal diving equipment.

    Course Outline:
    The course involves one evening in the classroom at DIVERS DISCOUNT SUPPLY, followed a few days later by four open water dives over two days. Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive your Underwater Navigator specialty certification card.

    Equipment:
    In addition to full ocean scuba equipment and two tanks -- all of which may be rented from Scuba.com Store Locations-- you will need a depth gauge, dive compass and bottom timer or dive watch.

    The above course description is general in term. There will be variations on the course depending on certification agency.
