As an Advanced diver the recommended depth is 30m or 40 meters for those with the PADI deep specialty certification. The only truly important thing about where you dive is that you have the scuba diving training and experience appropriate for diving there, and that you have a dive buddy to go with you. Your local PADI Dive Shop or Resort can help you organize great local diving or a dive vacation.
