SDI Boat Diver
When thinking around Port Phillip Bay and outside the heads we usually think about Wreck diving. Scuba diving and Wreck diving are almost synonymous here in Victoria. Our local waters offer some great wreck diving experiences to satisfy all levels of divers. Unfortunately, almost all of these wrecks must be accessed by boat and diving off these boats are unlike boat diving almost anywhere else.
To help prepare the local Wreck diver for the best possible boat diving experience, we are pleased to announce our SDI Boat Diving course. This program will best prepare you for what to expect when boarding a local dive boat.
The SDI Boat Diver course will introduce you to some different types of boat diving and the skills needed to plan and conduct a boat dive with maximum safety. The list of skills and knowledge you will obtain during this course is long an includes
- Safe entries and exits
- Proper stowing of equipment
- Safety procedures
- Planning boat dives
- Drift diving from live boats
Since we take no more than 4 students on the dives, you receive very personalised instruction.
The cost of the program includes all instruction (one morning/afternoon/evening of lecture at The Scuba Doctor before the dives to review what is necessary for you to prepare for the boat dive, with an additional lecture on the boat), and your Specialty certification in Boat Diving.
Each member of the class will need a full set of scuba equipment. Extra required equipment includes; a dive light, a line reel, a lift bag and a compass. The SDI Boat Diving course counts towards one of the programs needed for SDI Advanced Certification.
