PADI Boat Diver Specialty Instructor
Become a Boat Diver Specialty Instructor, Our Dive Instructor specialty course allows you to teach a structured program to orientate and educate your student divers about boat diving.
Some of the best diving locations in the world are only accessible by a dive boat and as scuba divers, we will all dive from a boat at some stage of our diving lives.
The PADI Boat Diver specialty course philosophy is to focus on the comfort and ease of diving from a boat.
The PADI Boat Diver Instructor specialty course prepares you as a Dive Instructor to teach student divers the advantages of boat diving.
You will learn how to teach boat terminology, types of dive boat, basic rules, safety equipment for boat diving, boat diving procedures and etiquette and the basic guides to boating safety.
Learn the tips, tricks and ways to:
- Dive from boats ranging from small inflatables to giant live-aboards
- How boats differ from place to place
- Gain experience and training from diving on boats in your local area
- Safely enter and exit the water
- Stow your gear in the most appropriate areas
- Use surface lines to initiate or conclude your dives.
- Locate basic boat safety equipment
The Scuba Gear You Use
- You use all the basic scuba equipment and some scuba accessories such as a dive slate, dive knife, compass, dive watch, etc.
- It is highly recommended that you own all of your own scuba equipment, as familiarity with personal gear improves general scuba diving skills.

PADI eLearning makes it easy to fit scuba lessons into a busy schedule. Learn about scuba diving principles and terminology whenever, wherever it's convenient for you. It's your course on your time.

To enroll on a PADI Boat Diver Instructor specialty course you must:
- Be at least a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor or currently participating in or have completed an IDC/OWSI Program within the past 12 months.
Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.
Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical Form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.
If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
