Having received a qualification diving level Open Water Diver, you will be able to dive for not more than 18 meters. If you raise you qualification and receive Advance Open Water Diver level, you will be able to dive as deep as 30 meters. But if you want to get the ability of diving even deeper, than you have to go through Deep Dive course, by the end of which you will gain access to deep-water scuba diving for the depth of 40 meters.
Why do I need this?
Really, when you are not that deep (less than 18 meters) the light is better, corals are most bright, there is fish of all the colors of the rainbow and the water is much warmer. It is all true. But dark sea deep always enticed people. Who lives there? What is there? What secrets lay at the bottom of the sea? Deep down is really much darker and colder than in the shallow waters. And yes, at depth the air supply is consumed faster, and this shortens the time spent under the water considerably. Without proper skills and knowledge depth can be very dangerous.
It is all true. But deep-water diving allows you to get acquainted with a completely different world that is beyond the reach of a regular person. There are completely different inhabitants that you never seen before. You can see coral reefs in their primeval beauty. Right there you can find the majority of sunken objects. Specialists of our diving center and deep-water diving course can help you see all this beauty with your own eyes.
Most of the time sunken objects lay 15-40 meters deep, depending on how the object sunk. Coral reefs often go down to such depths, for example Blue hall. If a person wants to get a Divemaster certificate or Instructor assistant, than it is obligatory for him to go through the deep-water diving course.
