The Underwater Navigator course consists of knowledge development through self study and review with an instructor. Once this is completed you will participate in 3 ocean dives on one day with an instructor to work on a variety of navigation skills. Dives will concentrate primarily on underwater navigation, but touch on some surface navigation skills as well. Underwater navigation skills will include both compass aided navigation and natural navigation.
