Whether you've never made a boat dive or you've logged dozens, the  Boat Diver Specialty course can benefit almost every diver.  There are dozens of different boats around the world that you maybe diving from and all have something unique about them.

The Fun Part

Diving from a boat is fun, especially when you look at ease when maneuvering around on it.  It is fun to know what you are doing, have a sense of what a boat should be doing and what you need to make that operation successful.  While others may stand around lost, you will be stowing your gear, admiring the running gear and waiting for the boat to cast off and begin the next adventure.
