UNDERWATER NAVIGATOR Underwater Navigator Course

Underwater Navigation Course with TEXAS DIVE CENTER

Be the diver everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the Navigation Specialty course.

The Fun Part

Finding your way is not a matter of luck! When everyone’s buzzing about a reef or checking out a shipwreck, they’re having a great time – until it’s time to go. Then they turn to you, because as a Underwater Navigator, you know the way back to the boat.

What You Learn

Underwater navigation can be challenging, but in this specialty course, you master the challenge. You learn the tools of the trade, including navigation via natural clues and by compass.

You learn:

  • Navigation patterns
  • Natural navigation (without a compass)
  • Compass navigation
  • How to “mark” or relocate a submerged object or position from the surface
  • Underwater map making
  • How to follow irregular courses with the Nav-Finder
  • Dive site relocation
  • How to estimate distance underwater

For all your learning materials and equipment, contact TEXAS DIVE CENTER.

Your Next Adventure

Underwater navigation is an important skill no matter what type of scuba diving you’re doing. It’s especially useful when night diving, wreck diving or when you’re searching to recover a lost item underwater.
