To take the PADI Underwater Navigation Diver course, you must be:
- A PADI Open Water Diver or PADI Junior Open Water diver (or equivalent certification from another organisation)
- At least 10 years old
As with all PADI courses we will get you to complete the Independent study prior to the course. For the Underwater Navigation Specialty course you will read the Underwater Navigation manual, complete the knowledge reviews and have them checked by our Instructor when you arrive at our office.
After all the paperwork has been done we will depart for three dives at Sanur. During the three dives you gain some great new skills and learn about:
- Navigation patterns
- Natural navigation (without a compass)
- Compass navigation
- How to “mark” or relocate a submerged object or position from the surface
- Underwater map making
- Dive site relocation
- How to estimate distance underwater
After the knowledge review and three open water training dives have been completed we will issue your PADI certification. You are now a PADI Underwater Navigation Diver!
