Deep Diver | Oahu Diving Association

Deep Diver

     Explore the mysteries of the deep.  Whether it’s a giant fan, a sponge, a spellbinding sea-creature you saw in the abyss while diving along side a seawall somewhere or just your mere obsession with wanting to plunge past 60 feet, there is just something about the ocean that makes us want to dive deeper and deeper.  Wreck and site exploration, deep photography and marine life identification are a few reasons why scuba divers like to dive deeper.  


The Fun Part

     The fun part of this course is getting to explore deeper, taking part in deep diving activities, and experiencing the effects of nitrogen narcosis after 90 feet deep. It’s exhilarating!


What You’ll Learn

     You will learn about the effects of gas narcosis, emergency decompression stops, the importance of deep safety stops, buddy contact, neutral buoyancy, dive planning, uncontrollable ascents, how to cope with an up welling while at depth, and more.
