The PADI Multilevel Diver Course
Please Note: The course does not include entry fees, boat fees, travel etc.
Maximize your dive time so you can explore more! In this course, you learn how to plan dives that extend your bottom time by crediting you for slower nitrogen absorption when you ascend to a shallower depth. That’s the way you really dive, after all.
