Boat Diver Instructor

Expand your diving and professional career with Beyond the Reef!

Boat Diver Instructor

Price: $199


This course helps you expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large liveaboards. You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat.

Much of the world’s best scuba diving is accessible only by boat. Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged dozens, the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will benefit you because boats in various parts of the world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site.

We will show you how to teach this course and include some hands-on skills like evaluating conditions, boat etiquette, and the familiarization of terms.
