  • Find suitable dive spots
  • Organising dives in rivers
  • Safety guidelines

Each course module will teach you more about river diving and help you become a better diver. Let’s look at each module and what it covers.

Finding Dive Spots

Not all rivers make for suitable dive spots. Learn everything you need to find one that is appropriate.

Rivers have unique ecosystems that allow you to observe interesting animals in their natural habitats. We will show you what you can find while diving in rivers.

Planning Your Dives

River dives are often extended drift dives.

Therefore, dive planning is incredibly important. Picking the right dive equipment, selecting the entry and exit points, and organizing pick-ups are part of this module.

We also provide examples of different types of rivers that you can dive in. This helps you enjoy your dives more, conserve air and make smart decisions underwater.
