What will you learn?
You’ll learn the tools of the trade, including navigation using natural clues and by following compass headings. During three scuba dives, you’ll practice:
- Methods to estimate distance underwater.
- Compass navigation while making at least five turns.
- Marking or relocating a submerged object or position from the surface.
- Underwater map making.
- Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask Scuba Evolution about earning credit.
What scuba gear will you use?
Besides your basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a compass and underwater slate. Scuba Evolution may suggest other gear to help you stay oriented, such as marker buoys or lines and reels.
