Deep Diver 40m Specialty

You have just finished your open water or advanced diving course, or maybe you are planning your next diving experience. As you look up all the amazing dive sites around the world, be it the amazing shallow waters with coral reefs or the thousands of wrecks that you can explore, you will notice something.

A lot of these deep dive sites go down below 30m, the depth limit for Advanced. So why not study for the Deep Diver Specialty certification on Koh Tao and be able to go to a maximum depth of 40m?

Diving deep on Koh Tao?

When you reach your dream diving destination and you look down on everything there is to see down there, all you wish is that you could go and explore that extra remaining bit.

Well, with the SSI Deep Diving Specialty, it opens up a whole new area you can explore as you will be certified to go down to a maximum depth of 40m, the deepest you can go as a recreational diver, allowing you to see some of the rest of what dive sites have to offer.

Following SSI’s approach to diving, the theory has gone fully digital, all the reading, quizzes and exam can now be done through the MySSI app. This can be done in advance of the course if you want more beach time. But there is still plenty of time to do it here.

The specialty course consists of a minimum of three dives, where we take you down progressively deeper depths.  Your dive professional will teach you everything you need to know to be safe and comfortable at these new depths and explore the deeper parts of our popular dive sites.

The first dive is between 18m and 30m, you may have already done this as part of your advanced course. The overall objective is to train you to plan, prepare, and experience a deep dive. Reaching the maximum depth limit is secondary to teaching proper dive planning and preparation for deep dives. If visibility or water conditions do not permit, limit your depth to only slightly deeper than 18 meters.

The second dive is between 24m and 30m where you should be able to plan your dive with minimal assistance from your instructor.

The third dive between 30m and 40m, where you should be able to plan and execute you dive without assistance from the instructor. The divers should experience depths below those reached during the previous dives if diving conditions permit.  The deeper dive sites such as Chumphon Pinnacle or Sail Rock are the obvious choices when possible and the best chance of seeing whale sharks.

We also play some simple games at depth to test your response times and awareness, keeping it fun as well as an educational course. Without the proper training diving to these depths has a much greater risk.
