UNDERWATER NAVIGATOR PADI Underwater Navigator Course

The PADI Underwater Navigator Course with Blue Water Divers

Be the diver everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course.

The Fun Part

Finding your way is not a matter of luck! When everyone’s buzzing about a reef or checking out a shipwreck, 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.

What You Learn

Underwater navigation can be challenging, but in the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course, you master the challenge. You learn the tools of the trade, including navigation via natural clues and by compass.

You learn:

  • Navigation patterns
  • Natural navigation (without a compass)
  • Compass navigation
  • How to “mark” or relocate a submerged object or position from the surface
  • Underwater map making
  • How to follow irregular courses with the Nav-Finder
  • Dive site relocation
  • How to estimate distance underwater

What Gear You Will Need

Students are expected to furnish their own Mask, Fins, Snorkel, Reel, and Compass. All other SCUBA Gear can be either rented our purchased through Blue Water Divers.  The Underwater Navigation crewpak or eLearning code is also required to complete the course and is available to purchase at the shop.

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact Blue Water Divers.

Your Next Adventure

Underwater navigation is an important skill no matter what type of scuba diving you’re doing. It’s especially useful when night diving, wreck diving or when you’re searching to recover a lost item underwater.
