Padi Underwater Navigator

Be the diver everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course. When everyone's buzzing about a reef or checking out a wreck, they're having a great time - until it's time to go. Then they turn to you, because as a PADI Underwater Navigator, you know the way back to the boat.

Master the challenge. Learn how to use the tools of the trade; how to navigate by natural clues, by compass, and with a Nav- Finder. You'll estimate distance underwater, follow navigation patterns and know where you are while following an arbitrary, irregular course just as you would when exploring a reef.

You will know where you are, where you need to go and how to get there. You will be confident in your ability to return to the boat or entry point from anywhere your dive adventure may take you.
