Boat Diving

Become a certified SSI boat diver

Often dive sites can not always be accessed directly from the shore. The boat diving course is the perfect program for learning how to dive from a boat safely.

It will allow you to acquire the skills and the knowledge necessary for the various launch types from a boat. We will show you everything you need to find on a boat in case of a problem (oxygen cylinder, radio, rescue equipment, buoys and other safety equipment).



The ocean is filled with dive sites, but many of the best ones can only be accessed by boat. If you want to discover these incredible dive sites, become an SSI boat diver. It is the best way to learn how to dive from different types of boats safely and with confidence. As a boat diver, you will be able to explore offshore dive sites that attract schooling pelagics and marine megafauna not found closer to shore. You can experience the excitement of liveaboard diving anywhere in the world, fill your day with diving away from the crowds, and cruise along as the sun goes down. Using online training and open water diving sessions, the SSI Boat Diving Specialty program is the best way to learn. This program teaches you all the skills and techniques you need to dive safely and comfortably from boats, including small personal craft and liveaboards.
