Deep DiverThe recommended depth limit for recreational divers — even those with considerable experience — is 100 feet. Unfortunately, most of diving’s most dramatic walls and many of its best wrecks lie in depths approaching 130 feet.

Once divers pass the 100-foot mark, potential problems such as narcosis, accelerated gas consumption and rapidly diminishing no-stop time increase exponentially. To better help divers deal with these challenges, Just Add Water offers the Deep Diver Specialty course. 


What is Involved?

This course involves self study, followed by a single classroom session, during which you will go over equipment and discuss upcoming dives and skills. This is followed by open-water training dives.


Where Do You Learn?

Except as noted, classroom sessions take place either at our Willoughby or Fairview Park locations. Locally conducted open-water training dives generally take place at Gilboa Quarry or on one of our Group Dive Trips.
