Specialty Course

Boat Diver

What will you learn?


The PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large liveaboards. You’ll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat and learn:


  • Boat terminology

  • Boat diving procedures and etiquette, including how to enter and exit, and where to stow your gear.

  • Boating safety, including how to locate safety equipment.


During the course you'll do


  • Two (2) dives in open water (1 day)
    - One from a bigger boat, the other from a speedboat

  • Knowledge review


There is a manual. You'll need to complete two Knowledge Reviews. A review session with your instructor is done at some point either between or after the dives, or as a separate session.





  • PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver (or have a qualifying certification from another organization)

  • Minimum age 10 years



Course fee


Boat Diver Specialty:  from HKD1,600 per person


Course fee includes professional instruction, course manual, tanks & weights used during the course and certification fee.

Boats in various parts of the world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site.
