PADI Underwater Navigator

Know where you are. Always!

Under water Navigation is, without a doubt, the most important, and often, the most overlooked aspect of diving. Remember your very first Open water dive? You were excited about your first diving experience and probably paid little attention to where you were going during the dive. You were perhaps astonished to surface and see that your instructor knew exactly where you were all the time. Navigation can be difficult but, with a little practice and experience, you two will soon be navigating like a pro.

During your Underwater Navigator Specialty course, you'll learn underwater navigation dive procedures, techniques, planning, organization and potential problems. You'll also be introduced to natural navigation, underwater patterns, distance estimation and further your compass navigation skills. You'll put these into practice during your three open water dives.
