Sparkling sapphire hued waters are, in some places, the exception to the rule for the choices of dive sites available to the diver. Not all the best underwater shipwrecks or submerged archaeological sites lay in pristine waters. If a diver only dives sites with good visibility, he has limited his potential for pleasure, discovery and adventure in the underwater realm. The need to learn how to dive in limited visibility from the standpoint of safety and enjoyment cannot be argued. The PSAI Limited Visibility Diving Course is designed to help expand the number of dive sites you can experience, reduce stress levels when you find visibility less than ideal, and expand your overall diving capabilities.
