PADI Navigational Diver Speciality

What is the PADI Underwater Navigator Speciality Course

Ever wondered how that instructor or dive guide got you back to the boat after an hour of swimming around under the water?

Want to go diving without coming up to the surface every ten minutes to check where you are? Be the diver everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course.

Finding your way is not a matter of luck! When everyone’s buzzing about a reef or checking out a shipwreck, 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.
