The PADI Deep Diver Specialty Course can be taken by anyone holding the Advanced Open Water License and any level beyond and allows you to dive around the world to a depth of 40m.

The PADI Deep Diver course is another extremely popular specialty scuba course. Why? With the Open Water Course you get certified to dive to a depth of 18m, while the Advanced Course allows you to dive to 30m. Often there is a lot that can still be seen in the recreational depth limits, and so adding this extra 10m of depth is a huge benefit to exploring many of the dive sites around the world. It is also of benefit to anyone that has a Wreck Specialty, since it allows you to get further inside the wreck when penetrating.

During this course you will learn the additional safety considerations involved with deep diving, simulate emergency decompression, and experience Nitrogen Narcosis stronger than ever before. Over the period of classroom sessions and 4 dives, you will:

  • Learn about colour changes from depth
  • Learn more about Nitrogen Narcosis
  • Simulate Emergency Decompression
  • Calculate your Surface Air Consumption Rate

Providing weather allows, you will complete your 40m dives on our Sail Rock Trip, meaning you will get to experience the best dive site in the Gulf of Thailand as part of the training.

New Way Koh Tao Diving offer a maximum group size of 4 students to 1 of our experienced instructors, assuring that each student receives ample attention, allowing them to qualify as a more than competent diver while have great, safe fun! If smaller instruction is desired, please request on the email and we are happy to arrange!

The Deep Diver License certifies you to dive around the world and explore recreational dive sites at any depth. After having achieved this qualification there are a few routes to continue. Firstly, you may decide to continue Fun Diving with us, and continue using Nitrox. All ex-students receive a discounted rate on all continuing dives that they do with us, as a way of us saying thanks! Secondly, you may decide to continue learning more about the various environments in which we dive by pursuing the corresponding Specialty Diver Course, the most popular of these being the Wreck Diver Specialty, which certifies you to penetrate wrecks, and the Nitrox Diver Specialty, which allows you extend your No-Decompression-Limits and dive safer with the use of increased percentages of Oxygen in your tanks. With both of these last two options, we also like to say thanks for completing the Deep Diver Course with us, and offer 10% Discount from this course.
