Boat Diving

Be prepared for your next trip! Boat diving is all about knowing what to do on what type of vessel. This course will teach you all about being prepared for diving from a boat: entries and exits, stowing your equipment, and lots of helpful tips we've learned over the years. Learn how to choose a diver operator and boat to dive from, as well as tips on traveling and equipment you may need. You will earn the SSI Boat Diving Specialty certification after completing this program.

To complete your Boat Diving Specialty, purchase the course through our online shop or call Sonoma Coast Divers. Then complete the Boat Diving digital coursework and finally call the shop to schedule your boat dives. We typically have boat dives out of Monterey once a month.
