Underwater

Navigator

Class Description

Knowing where you are – underwater – and where you’re going comes in real handy, especially if you’re looking for an object or locating that beautiful reef that you heard about.

During your PADI Underwater Navigator program you’ll familiarize yourself with the skills, knowledge, planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems, hazards and enjoyment of underwater navigation.

You learn:

  • procedures and techniques for planning, organizing underwater navigation and problems and hazards associated.
  • methods of estimating distances underwater.
  • natural navigation techniques.
  • how to use underwater patterns.
  • dive site relocation techniques.
  • compass navigation techniques.

The elective Navigation dive conducted during your Adventures In Diving program may count toward this specialty at the discretion of the instructor.  This class includes 3 open water dives.

You can find out more about this topic from information in the PADI Underwater Navigator Crew-Pak.

Prerequisites: PADI Open Water diver certification or an acceptable equivalent.
