Experiences like these attract divers to boat diving. In fact, virtually all divers end up diving from a boat sooner or later whether it's a skiff, a giant live-aboard dive yacht, or a sailboat. Surprisingly, some divers learn to dive and make dozens of dives before they ever set foot on a dive boat; others learn to dive from one type of boat, but have little experience diving from others. If you're in either group, the Boat Diver Specialty is a great way to learn the ropes of diving from boats and & speed your transition to diving from boats or boats you are unfamiliar with. Even if you've already been diving from boats, this course will teach you how to make experience safer, easier, and more comfortable.
