Who should take this course?
There is something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites, whilst scuba diving.
Sometimes, it is a mysterious wreck that attracts you below 18 metres, then again on deep wall dives, it could be a giant sea fan or barrel sponge.
Quite often tropical waters, clear and calm, can very deceiving and you can find yourself quite deep, without realising it.
