What to Expect on PADI Underwater Navigator?

The PADI Underwater Navigator course in Costa Rica lasts two days and includes theoretical classes and 4 training dives. During the training we use standard recreational diving equipment. Your training includes theoretical training in the form of e-learning, so you can start the course anywhere and anytime. Later, your instructor will test your knowledge and clarify any doubts.


Underwater Navigation 

During the training you will learn and practice several methods of dive planning and underwater navigation. You will learn to choose the best method for the prevailing conditions and, most importantly, to plan the entire dive correctly. During the training you will practice methods of underwater navigation in changing conditions and visibility.

However, before jumping into the water, you will practice all the techniques on land to thoroughly understand their principles. Under water, everything will be more difficult, so you will repeatedly practice tasks to get to perfection.

We have prepared answers to the most frequently asked questions about our PADI Underwater Navigator course in Costa Rica. If you have any additional questions, please contact us.

What will I learn in this course?

At the end of the course, each student will plan and conduct his or her own dive based on the navigation techniques learned.

During this diving course you will use the standard diving equipment that you already know from the basic course. A compass and a slate for taking notes will be essential, of course.

Depending on current availability and ocean conditions, we always try to select the best locations for training. An exact schedule will be provided when you sign up for the course, but if you have any questions, please contact our office. We usually try to have our dives done on Isla del Cano.
