PADI Boat Diver

Much of the world’s best scuba diving is accessible only by boat. Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged many, the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will benefit you because boats in various parts of the world do things differently.


Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site.

You will need to be a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher to enroll in the Boat Diver course.

During this course, we will cover:

  • Boat terminology.

  • Boat diving procedures and etiquette, including how to enter and exit, and where to stow your gear.

  • Boating safety, including how to locate safety equipment.

  • Deployment of safety devices, and dive planning / navigation.

We can offer you two ways to take this course as follows:

Option 1 - During One of our UK Dive Trips - The course will be £179, plus the cost of your trip.

Option 2 - During one of our Foreign Trips - The course will be £135, plus the cost of your trip.

Option 3 - Book this at the same time as a PADI Drift Diver Specialty on one of our foreign trips and save £30 on the drift diver specialty.
