Why PADI Altitude Diver?

Any time you’re diving from 300 to 3000 meters/1000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, you’re altitude diving. If you want to explore the hidden world of a mountain lake, the PADI Altitude Diver Specialty Course is for you.

What do I need to start?

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers who are at least 10 years old can enroll in the Altitude Diver Course.

What will you learn?

The Altitude Diver Specialty course familiarizes you with the rules and procedures necessary to use the Recreational Dive Planner at altitude. This includes:
