The PADI Deep Diver Specialty course offers you the opportunity of a lifetime – going deep to see thing others can only dream about.
If you’re like most people, even after your first few dives, you wanted to explore deeper. There’s just something exciting and mysterious about the ocean’s depths. So if you’ve already taken your PADI National Geographic Advanced Open Water Diver course — or just the standard Advanced course or even the Adventure Diver half-certification course — you can dive into the PADI Deep Diver specialty. With it, you’ll be licensed to go the maximum recreational dive limit of 40 m. / 130 ft.
In Pattaya, Aquanauts has several dive sites that give you the depth you want. In fact, if you become technical diving certified, we can take you to 92 meters / 300 feet!

Pattaya is Thailand’s shipwreck diving capital and they’re all deep. So many people who do the Deep course also take the PADI Wreck Diver course with us. You can learn more about Pattaya’s three wrecks here. You can also enjoy the deep and wreck dives more if you are breathing “enriched air,” known as nitrox. To do this, you’ll need to take the Enriched Air Nitrox Diver course, which can also be done online.
Do the course online before you get here to Pattaya and you can dive on Nitrox while doing your Deep or Wreck course!
