PADI Specialty – Deep Diver Course $325 – $500
You are in 39 metres of water,
everything is blue-grey, you pass your torch over the reef and a myriad of colours explode before your eyes, a touch of narcosis creeps in as you marvel at the corals and creatures not seen at shallower depths. You check your gauges as the limit approaches quickly. Time for one last peek into the hold of the wreck, then it is up to the 5 metre mark for your safety stop.
