The PADI Tectonic Plate Awareness Distinctive Specialty Course has been designed by DIVE.IS and gives you a much deeper insight into diving between the continents.
The purpose of the PADI Tectonic Plate Awareness Specialty Course is to introduce scuba divers to the exciting geological world of plate tectonics and the special considerations when diving in fissures between tectonic plates.
On this course we will go deeper into the theory of plate tectonics in context to the Silfra fissure and other rifts that can be seen throughout Iceland.
For safety issues special considerations need to be taken care of when diving in this extreme environment. On the other hand this environment has some very special features to offer, such as the fact that you are diving in the clearest water of this planet and that you are holding one hand on a wall in America and the other one in Europe.
After the course you will take a knowledge review with 20 questions. After reviewing these questions with your instructor, he will certify you as a PADI Tectonic Plate Awareness Diver and you will receive a PADI certification card for this disctinctive specialty.
