Altitude Diver



We are located in Calgary.  We are at Altitude.   Every dive we do in Alberta is at Altitude.     

The Altitude specialty course is a must for any Alberta diver if you want to explore the hidden world of our mountain lakes.  Every time you dive at 300 to 3000 metres or 1000 to 10,000 feet above sea level, you are Altitude diving.  The fun part about Altitude diving is that you can explore places many people have never seen.

Whether you use a recreational dive planner or a dive computer you’ll learn how plan and make dives at high altitudes; learn the effects of pressure at higher altitudes and how to adjust your dive plan accordingly; techniques, problems and hazards specific to altitude diving;  special procedures, safety and decompression stops.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!!!  Are you medically able to dive?

The purpose of the PADI Medical Statement is to find out if you should be examined by your doctor before participating in recreational diver training.

Please answer the questions contained in the PADI Medical Statement on your past or present medical history with a ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ – ‘Y’ and ‘N’ are NOT acceptable answers.  If you are not sure, answer ‘YES’.

If any of these items apply to you, you MUST have the Medical Statement signed by a physician prior to participating in scuba diving.
