The Boat Diver Course with TEXAS DIVE CENTER

Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged dozens, the Boat Diver Specialty course can benefit almost every diver because different boats in different parts of the world do things differently.


The Fun Part

Diving from a boat is not only fun, especially when you look at ease when maneuvering around on it, but it is the easiest form of scuba diving. It’s fun to know what you’re doing and not ask "where is the bathroom" when you should be asking "where is the head?"

What You Learn

Learn the tips, tricks and ways to:

  • Dive from boats ranging from small inflatables to giant live-aboards :
  • how they differ from place to place
  • gain experience and training from diving on boats in your local area
  • Safely enter and exit the water :
  • sometimes it’s better to hand your gear up to the crew and then climb in the boat
  • sometimes you just take off your fins and weights and walk up the ladder
  • Stow your gear in the most appropriate areas
  • Use surface lines to initiate or conclude your dives.
  • Locate basic boat safety equipment
