Altitude Diver


This course is designed to be an introduction to altitude diving and to help the student diver develop the skills, knowledge and techniques necessary for altitude diving. Any time you’re diving 1,000 feet or more above sea level, you’re altitude diving. If you want to safely explore the hidden world of a mountain lake, the PADI Altitude Diver Specialty course is for you. The Altitude Diver Specialty course familiarizes you with the rules and procedures necessary to use the Recreational Dive Planner or your personal dive computer at altitude.
