Altitude Diver

If you want to explore the hidden world of a mountain lake, the PADI Altitude Diver specialty course is for you. This course familiarizes you with the rules and procedures necessary for altitude diving, including how to use the Recreational Dive Planner at altitude. We'll also cover equipment considerations, guidelines for traveling to and from a dive site that's at altitude, and how to protect yourself against hypoxia and hypothermia--medical situations that are more common among divers at altitude.
