“Depth attracts a lot of divers as deep dives provide this certain kick.” Dive in places where only a few have explored before! Get the experience of diving on a wreck below 18 meters! To do these dives safely, you need the right skills and the right knowledge and that is exactly what DEEP DIVING provides you.Without proper training this kind of diving is an uncontrollable safety risk. To plan your dives properly you must first know about all of the potential risks involved in deep diving. SSI’s DEEP DIVING course will provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience required to make these types of dives safely and comfortably.
