Altitude Diver

Altitude Diver

Imagine descending below the surface of a clear mountain lake to explore a well-preserved wreck. Interested? Any time you scuba dive at an altitude higher than 300 metres/1000 feet above sea level, you’re altitude diving. If you’re ready to discover a hidden world where few have ventured, then the PADI Altitude Diver Specialty course is for you.

Learning to adjust your dive plan for the reduced surface pressure at altitude is an important part of the course. You’ll complete two scuba dives and learn:

  • • Altitude dive planning, organization, procedures, and techniques.
  • • How to adjust your dive computer for altitude diving or calculate altitude dive profiles using the RDP Table or eRDPMLTM.
  • • How to avoid problems and handle emergency situations, if they occur, at altitude.

Other Details:

  • Minimum age: at least 10 years old
  • Prerequisites: PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are eligible to take the Altitude Diver course.

Diving in altitudes higher than 300 metres/1000 feet above sea level is altitude diving. Discover a hidden world where only a few have ventured.
