Beyond The Basics


Come take your diving to new depths!

What is considered deep recreational diving?
Diving beyond 60 feet up and potentially up to 130 feet.

Scuba divers like to be free to dive as deep as we need to be. Some divers like to explore what is usually beyond where most aquatic life lives. Some wreck dives and wall dives seem to just call us deeper and deeper. Here in lies the issue. What is deep and why should we be trained to go deeper? Probably the most important point, what's it like to go deep and what kind of training is required to go deep diving.

If you've ever wonder about the above. This class is for you to learn under the supervision and guidance of the dive pro's at Malibu Divers.

The Deep Diver course can build on the skills you acquired as part of the Advanced Diver course to help enable you to make these dives safely and more effectively.
