If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 10 years old, you can enroll in the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course.
What will you learn?
You’ll learn the tools of the trade, including navigation using natural clues and by following compass headings. During three scuba dives, you’ll practice:
- Methods to estimate distance underwater.
- Compass navigation while making at least five turns.
- Marking or relocating a submerged object or position from the surface.
- Underwater map making.
How long is the course?
You work on the knowledge development at your own pace to complete it prior to the in water sessions.
The dives are typically conducted over one day. However, we can schedule the dives to a time that suits you.
What scuba gear will you use?
Besides your basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a compass and underwater slate.
Ideally, it's best to have your own gear as you want to be able to tailor the configuration for your comfort and needs as you gain more experience. But don't worry if you don't, we can provide all the specialist equipment or even fit you out in a full set of gear.
