Underwater Nav Course

 

Never feel lost underwater

Underwater navigation skills are an important part of diving. The skills you learn on this course will increase your confidence and reduce stress and anxiety levels, which will in turn improve your air consumption and give you more time to enjoy the dive instead of concentrating on not getting separated from your dive buddy and/or getting lost.
