Everything You Need To Know About Deep Sea Diving


One of the most popular underwater activities is deep-sea diving. It enables divers to explore and admire the ocean's diverse marine life, corals, and experiences. This diving approach, however, differs from scuba diving and snorkelling in that it allows divers to explore the ocean in a unique way.

  • What is deep-sea diving?

Deep-sea diving, which permits divers to dive deeper beyond the scuba diving limit of 40 metres, necessitates specialised training from diving professionals. PADI, on the other hand, considers any dive between 18 and 30 metres to be a "deep dive." Deep diving is also considered a type of technical diving by PADI, and personnel are trained expressly for it. To deal with the obstacles of diving to deeper depths, the diver's equipment and talents must be modified.

  • How to become a deep-sea diver?

Two days of training are required to become a deep diver. The PADI Deep Diver course will let you reach a maximum depth of 40 metres. It will also teach you new diving methods, provide you with more experience, and instruct you on how to deal with nitrogen narcosis. Customers at Oyster Diving frequently tell us that this is their favourite speciality dive course since it allows them to go deeper into the water.

  • Rules, Recommendations and Tips for a Safe Deep Dive

Do’s

  1. Plan your dive. Determine your maximum depth and time spent at the bottom.

  2. Before diving, always do the Pre-Dive Safety Check.

  3. Keep an eye on your depth and pressure gauges on a regular basis. For your climb, make sure you have plenty of air in your tank.

Don’ts

  1. Do not arrange your dive so that it exceeds the dive table's No Decompression Limits.

  2. Always dive with an experienced partner and never dive alone.

  3. Never go deeper than you anticipated or stay in the water longer than you expected.


  • Equipment you need for deep-sea diving

Deep-sea diving necessitates specialised equipment that can operate at substantial ocean depths. The more you dive, the more you'll be reliant on your gear. As a result, it's critical that you buy the right gear to keep you safe underwater while also allowing you to enjoy your deep dive.

Benefits of deep-sea diving

  • Exploring the depths: the best things to view underwater are sometimes found at greater depths, and deep-diving allows you to see them for yourself.


  • Deep diving allows you to appreciate the silence of the deep, with only the sounds of your regulator and low bubble sounds to break the silence.

  • New adventures: as a deep diver, you'll be able to visit some of the world's most interesting dive locations. The diver dives to depths where he or she can enjoy sensations that are not possible in shallower seas.
