Underwater Navigator

Find Your Way

PADI Underwater Navigator

Be the scuba diver everyone wants to follow because you know where you are and where you're going, and most importantly, how to get back!

It’s easy to get disoriented underwater if you don’t know how to use a compass or natural navigation clues, especially at night, in new locations or in poor viz.  

Fine-tune your observation skills and learn to more accurately use your compass underwater.  Learn how to easily find your way back to the boat or shore without returning to the surface and avoid long, exhausting swims.
