The lure of the deep. There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving in the Cayman Islands. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.


  • PADI Adventure Diver rating or higher
  • At least 15 years old
  • Complete a Medical Questionnaire


Your training starts by reviewing reasons for deep diving and how important it is to know your personal limits. During four deep dives with your instructor, you’ll go over:

  • Specialized deep diving equipment.
  • Deep dive planning, buddy contact procedures and buoyancy control.
  • Managing your gas supply, dealing with gas narcosis and safety considerations.
  • You may be able to get college credit for the Deep Diver course

Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.


You’ll need a dive computer along with the rest of your basic scuba equipment. A dive light and slate are also recommended.
