I wasn't aware that Padi offered "a PADI Basic Spearfishing course". I thought they only offered the Project Aware course.

Not true guys..Glad ya'll checked : however, PADI allows intructors to write their OWN course which has to be APPROVED by PADI. I wrote my own and it has been officially APPROVED By PADI. You even get a PADI Spearfishing "C" card upon completion..

Ten four-They do all that now??? Glad to hear PADI is coming around to spearfishing then! Just dont forget to tell them to pull the trigger! Haha! I like to think of it as a dual speciality. You shoot the fish, then take a picture.

Cool! For new people I think some type of "course" is very recommended. A lot of the spearos when they get in the water, even with a new spearfisher/newer diver just split and leave them on there own. I have been on trips like that where it would have ended badly for the "new guy" if I hadn't have stuck around out of concern. One guy on here posted the story a few years back. I got him to the surface safely, and he went home to his family. And said he learned some valuable lessons that day, which in the end is good.

Of course you new guys, if you get invited on on a trip, make sure to let the guys know your new to spearing, or semi new to diving if that's the case.

Hope to see some new guys getting in to it! Good job posting it Mqark
