SSI DEEP DIVER SPECIALTY
TAKING YOU TO 40M
Continue your SCUBA discovery with the SSI Deep Diver specialty program
If you dream of exploring the big blue this specialty is for you. The SSI Deep Diver Specialty will give you the ability to safely and comfortably plan and conduct dives beyond 18 meters, and is a prerequisite for some advanced training.
Many exciting dive sites are located in deeper water. Without proper training, this kind of diving puts you at risk. Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it may be a giant fan or sponge. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet, you should take the SSI Deep Diving Specialty.
If you had decided that diving is a sport you want to really immerse yourself in, then its time for you to continue your adventure with SSI’s continuing education program.

DIVE COURSE ITINERARY
The Diver Diamond methodology
Each of our Specialty Programs is based on our diver diamond methodology
Diver Diamond is the cornerstone of the SSI educational system. It emphasizes the critical components of a great scuba education program: Proper knowledge, Proper Skills, Proper Equipment and Proper Experience. The diver diamond is the foundation for the Ultimate Dive Experience.
At SSI, they don’t want you to just learn to dive; they want you to become a diver. Their goal is to make every step of your scuba experience all about your comfort and confidence in the water. SSI professionals work together to make learning come alive with personalized instructions that will put your skills to use in reality based training scenarios. The unique approach is known as “Comfort through repetition”. By practicing each skill learned throughout each level of training your actions become conditioned responses – second nature!
Repetition ensures you retain what you have already learned while continuing to learn more. As a result, diving becomes more fun.

WHAT TO BRING
While New Zealand Diving will provide all necessary diving equipment, you will need to bring sunscreen, swimwear, a towel, and a change of clothes to each session.
