Boost Diving Confidence And Skill Set With The PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty In Phuket
Diving in Phuket is slightly unique. By law you have to dive with a local guide but that’s certainly not the case with many places in the world. You may be given a dive briefing and then left to your own devices or you may want to explore your local dive sites after having the initial orientation from a PADI pro. This is where PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty becomes an absolute must.
If you’re the kind of diver who keeps a vice like grip on your guides or buddy’s arm? Then it’s time to boost your confidence and skills with the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty. Be the diver that everyone trusts and not the one who causes extensive bruising to others arms.
The PADI Underwater Navigator course focuses your observation skills and gives you complete confidence with your compass. So turning it into a valuable tool and not just an accessory. The course is a great deal of fun and ideal for divers who like to challenge themselves.
