The Navigation Course

To become a safe and confident diver, it is critical to develop an understanding of navigation. You will learn how to navigate with a compass, and how to apply natural navigation skills, estimate distances, navigate different search patterns, find your way to marking points, and be able to get back to the exit point.

Be the diver everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the Navigation Specialty course.

This is the Workshop portion of the Night and Limited Visibility Diving course. You will complete the Digital Home Study portion of course prior to this Workshop.

Also register for the Dives at Lake Wazee on the upcoming weekend, June 25 and 26.

The total fee for the course is $125.00

The Fun Part

Finding your way is not a matter of luck! When everyone’s buzzing about a reef or checking out a shipwreck, they’re having a great time – until it’s time to go. Then they turn to you, because as a Navigation Specalist, you know the way back to the boat.
