Do you have a real passion for diving and feel like being in the water is just as comfortable as being at home? Then you might be what is called a Master Scuba Diver. Master Scuba Diver is an elite certification that only around 2% of all divers have achieved. Its an exclusive program from PADI and is only a step behind the world of professional diving.
Here’s what it takes to be the best recreational diver by completing the Master Scuba Diving Challenges:
Earn the open water diver title
Learning to dive is the first step in becoming a Master Scuba Diver. Most people have already accomplished this, but for those who haven’t, it is never too late. Aqura Dive holds PADI Open Water Dive courses where you can earn this certification.
Earn the advanced open water diver title
This course includes critical skills and knowledge that aren’t taught in the earlier courses. You’ll be introduced to a variety of specialty dives such as night diving, deep diving and search, and recovery.
Become a rescue diver
This course prepares you to handle any emergency situation by using different techniques. Some divers think this is the most challenging (yet rewarding) course, as you learn to solve problems you could face underwater and gain more confidence, and are also able to help others if needed.
Earn 5 PADI Specialty Certifications
The specialty dive certification lets you explore deeply what you are most interested in as a diver. Whether its wreck diving, photo or video courses or if you’re into photography or just have an interest in marine wildlife. There are over 20 different specialty courses to choose from.
Reach 50 logged scuba dives
The last stage in gaining the PADI Master Scuba Diver is making sure you have enough experience in the water. Logging a minimum of 50 dives can help you gain enough experience and comfort. If you’re still short on dives, the fastest and most fun way to log a lot of dives is by joining group dive trips where several dives are held every day.
Completing these steps will indeed crown you as a Master Scuba Diver. All that’s left to do is fill out your documents at Aqura Dive and your application will be sent to PADI. You’ll officially be part of the 2% of divers who have earned this impressive achievement!
