When you're underwater, knowing where you are and where you're going comes in handy, especially if you're looking for that beautiful reef that you've heard all about. The PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course will help you become a pro at finding your way underwater.

During your course you'll learn underwater navigation dive procedures, techniques, planning, organisation and potential problems. You'll also be introduced to natural navigation, underwater patterns, distance estimation and further your compass navigation skills.

The PADI U/W Navigation certification counts toward your Master Scuba Diver rating and is run over 3 open water dives with your instructor.

Course Costs

The cost of the Search & Recovery specialty is 8,000 Baht and is held over 2 days.

By diving with enriched air rather than standard air (21% oxygen) you can extend your no decompression limits. This means more time underwater. For example, if you dive to 30 metres/100 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 20 minutes. But, diving on EANx36 (36% oxygen) gets you 35 minutes of no decompression time - what almost doubles your no decompression limit!

The PADI Enriched Air Diver Specialty certification emphasizes the theoretical and operational considerations involved with enriched air diving, how to get an enriched air fill and how to correctly analyse it.

The course consists of a theory session in the classroom at Davy Jones Locker at which time you are certified as an enriched diver, but if you wish the course to go towards your advanced certification or master scuba diver then you must also complete 2 open water dives. These dives can be combined with other specialist dives allowing the diver to complete 2 specialities at a time, ask your instructor for options.
