– Diving in Northern California involves diving in and around kelp forests. Rather than having to constantly go to the surface to get back on course, rather than wasting a great deal of time and air constantly ascending and descending, we want you to max out your dive by knowing where you're going and getting there easily. The PENDIVE navigation program consists of two formal Navigation dives. The Navigation course consists of direction changes, depth awareness, and reciprocal headings with corrections being conducted on the surface. The second dive is a repeat of the first, but with everything being done below the surface. The course is usually three sided - you and your buddy go to all three points, and then follow a reverse or reciprocal heading. The buddies alternate leadership. If you do it correct, you end up where you started.

Navigation Courses normally include other AOWD subjects, basic scuba skills review, and classroom time.
