SSI Altitude Diving Program

Is your next adventure somewhere unprecedented? Do you simply want to expand your diving options or would you like to learn SSI Altitude Diving in our local lakes here in Aotearoa?

If you dive into a water that is 300 to 3000 meters above sea level, this is called 'Altitude diving', so, when it comes to scuba diving and altitude, it’s clear that something is happening that may adversely impact our bodies. But what exactly is going on?

The SSI Altitude Diving program will give you the proper training to plan and execute your altitude dives safely.

Course Overview
