UNDERWATER NAVIGATOR Find Your Way

CompassBe the scuba diver everyone wants to follow because you know where you are and where you’re going. The Underwater Navigator course fine-tunes your observation skills and teaches you to more accurately use your compass underwater. If you like challenges with big rewards, take this course and have fun finding your way.

 

 

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

You can take this course concurrently with the Underwater Navigator course taking place on the same dates. This course also counts to toward our Master Scuba Diver Challenge and could win you a free trip to the Bahamas.
