PADI Deep Diver Course combined with other courses

Usually, shipwrecks are located at significant depths. PADI Deep Diver Specialty course is a very good addition to PADI Wreck Diver Course. There’s no reason to make a deep dive if you can make essentially the same dive at a shallower depth. Unlike shallower dives, deep dives tend to be short since no-decompression time is limited. PADI Enriched Air Diver Specialty Course allows divers to extend the bottom time and reduce nitrogen loading. If you continue to be enchanted by the depths - check out PADI Technical diving courses.
