It is very easy to become disoriented and misdirected underneath the surface due to a lack of the directional landmarks we are accustom to on land. The PADI Underwater Navigator course will help eliminate those long surface swims back to your exit point and teach you skills you’ll use on every dive. Come join us, it’s educational and a lot of fun!
