What will I learn in the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty Course?

This 1 day course consists of two main areas which include academic training, self-study sessions, and 3 navigation dives:


You’ll learn about environmental clues which aid natural navigation, various useful patterns applicable to diving with a compass, techniques for estimating distance, pre-dive observation skills and complete the knowledge review and take the final exam.

PADI courses are designed to help you learn in the way that’s best for you. Courses combine visual, reading, writing and practical learning techniques to ensure you really understand each section.

During 3 Navigation Dives you’ll practice both natural navigation and compass positioning, setting bearings, practice useful compass patterns, locate a previously identified submerged object, and even create your own map of one of the Lanta Sites.

A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving but indicates a pre-existing condition that may affect your safety while diving. Your doctor would be required to complete the PADI Medical Statement & Guidelines for Recreational Scuba Diver’s Physical Examination on your behalf in this instance.
