Enjoy the blue depths

Gain experience in the blue by doing your PADI Deep Diver Specialty! 

Search for flabellinas!

Flabellinas are most commonly spotted in depths of 20-40 metres, a good reason to go deep diving!  

Deep diving from our boat!

To increase the comfort and safety of deep diving, we recommend doing most of your deep dives from our boat. 

Do the PADI Deep Diver Specialty to:

  • Improve your training so you can explore greater depths
  • Increase your depth limit to 40 metres, the maximum depth for recreational divers
  • Do an activity that is exhilarating and attractive for many divers

Deep diving offers adventure:

  • Visit untouched parts of the world
  • Feel the adrenaline and excitement of going deeper
  • Observe species that are only found at greater depths

Explore diverse deep dive sites

We currently have over 10 deep ::dive sites::, some which are accessible from the shore and some which we visit with the boat. We have a diverse variety of deep dive sites, offering:

  • Wall dives

Each of these dive sites has something special to offer.
