The Underwater Navigation Diver Course is a popular specialty course to improve you orientation skills underwater. At Nico Dives Cool you can choose to become certified either with SSI or PADI. Both diving federations are recognised throughout the World.
Once completed you will have the basic skills and theoretical knowledge to navigate the underwater world with confidence. You will learn about physical contours and characteristics of the dives sites. This we call natural navigation. In addition to this method we will add compass navigation skills for your to be able to use both methods. Throughout the course you will learn to estimate distances, navigate different search patterns, and finding your way to different marking points. Soon, and with a bit more practice, you will be the one who everybody wants to follow on their dives!
At Nico Dives Cools we want you to have the best learning experience possible. This is why we keep our student ratios to dive instructors extremely low. Compared to other large dive centres you get a highly personalised course and diving practice experience. Very often our experience diving instructor will only teach one student at a time. In general we prefer to have no more than two students per instructor so we can assure a quality education. Also, this is the key reasons why Nico Dives Cool has such an amazing 5-Star reputation amongst its customers. Having said that we can be flexible if you want to do your course with several people. Simply let us know your preferences and we will make sure that you have a fantastic learning experience.
On the day of your diving course we will pick you up from your hotel and later drop you off too. On the drive we review your diving knowledge, to make sure you have a good grasp of the diving theory required for the course.
In the water we will complete all required skills exercises over two or three dives (depending if you do SSI or PADI), outside of the water we will work on the theory. We will take you to either Tulamben, Amed, or Padang Bai to complete your training dives. These are amazing dive sites. If you prefer to be quickly done with the course we can do the course in Sanur, but personally, we prefer the other diving sites.
