How much deeper would you like to dive?
Having qualified as an SAA Club Diver, you are allowed to dive to a depth of 35 metres. With further training and experience you can become a Dive Leader, whereupon you’d then be qualified to dive to 50 metres. This is greater than most training bodies allow, however, it would be irresponsible of us to say “go ahead” to a newly-qualified diver, to allow them to go to that depth without some additional training and gaining of experience. Therefore, we will always encourage members to build-up gradually before going on to more advanced levels of diving. Moving-up through to Dive Leader and on to Dive Supervisor, gives you that gradual build-up of skills and experience which is essential for advanced diving.
Having also completed your Nitrox training, is a step to give you a more serious attitude in the planning of dives. As Nitrox has depth limits, you now have to start thinking in more detail about your dive.
