The 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.
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.
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.
