The underwater world is very different once you start going deeper than 60ft. Nitrogen narcosis, decompression planning, and air consumption have more rigid requirements. These are just a few of the reasons why diving deeper is much safer with the proper training. The Deep Diving class requires one class session and 4 open water dives. These can be completed as a shore dive or boat dive depending on the student requirements and weather conditions. Sign up today!

The most important form to fill out ahead of time is the medical. Go through the medical now and check to see if you need to answer "YES" to any of the questions. If so no big deal - you'll just need to get a doctors' sign-off before we can let you in the pool. The doctors' note is in the same file as the medical - Just scroll down to the next page. Remember IF you answer "YES" to anything in the medical it is COMPULSORY to get a doctors' note BEFORE getting in the pool.
The Deep Course has 3 components - classroom, pool and open water dives. There is one classroom session, one pool session and two days of open water diving. Please check the schedule before signing up to make sure you will be able to make the classes ahead of time.
The Class will take place at the Shop in Brookline (213 Boylston Street), the pool session is located at the Brookline Pool and the open water session will be dependent on weather. A couple of the popular ones can be found in the directions page
