The Altitude Diver Course

Any time you are diving 1,000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, you're altitude diving and in West Texas we certainly fit that rule.  If you plan on doing any diving west of Austin or Ft Worth the Altitude Diver Specialty course is for you. Any diving in west Texas or New Mexico is at altitude, even Balmorhea.

The Fun Part

Dive more challenging dive sites like the "Blue Hole" in Santa Rosa, NM while you satisfy your curiosity for “I wonder what’s down there?” The fun part about altitude diving is that you can explore places many people have never seen.

What You Learn

You’ll learn the effects of pressure at higher altitudes and how to adjust your dive plan accordingly. Whether you use a recreational dive planner table (RDP), an electronic App or a dive computer, you’ll learn how to plan and make a dive at altitudes. You’ll learn :

  • Altitude dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards
  • Recreational dive planning procedures for diving at altitude
  • Safety stops and emergency decompression procedures at altitude
For all your learning materials and equipment, contact TEXAS DIVE CENTER.

Your Next Adventure

Chances are if you’re scuba diving up high in the mountains you may also want to be prepared with the Dry Suit Diver course.
