Underwater Navigator

Be the diver everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course. When everyone’s buzzing about a reef or checking out a wreck, they’re having a great time – until it’s time to go. Then they turn to you, because as a PADI Underwater Navigator, you know the way back to the boat.


What form will the course take?


This course is designed to be an introduction to underwater navigation and to help you develop the skills and knowledge necessary for use in underwater navigation.


Underwater navigation can be challenging, but in the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course, you master the challenge.  You learn the tools of the trade, including navigation via natural clues and by compass.  You learn to estimate distance underwater, follow navigation patterns and know where you are while following an arbitrary, irregular course using the Nav-Finder.


• Navigation patterns, natural and compass navigation

• Following irregular courses with the Nav-Finder

• Dive site relocation

• Certification counts toward the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating.



The Course Schedule


The course includes a knowledge development session and three open water dives. Please check with an Instructor at In Depth Diving for the next scheduled course dates.  


This is the ideal course to do in the UK or warmer climes on a trip organised by Indepth.


What qualifications do I need?


You must be a PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver (or qualifying certification from another organization).  You must be at least 10 years old.


Course Fee


The course costs £150 and includes tuition fees and Underwater Navigator manual.  Equipment rental and transportation costs to dive sites are not included in the price.
