Advance Your Skills

Continuing your dive education for certified divers 

There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites Sometimes it’s a wreck that attracts you below 60 feet, and on wall dives it may be sealife. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.

Exploration, Excitement, Experiences. They’re what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course is all about. And no, you don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed so you can go straight into it after the open water course

 

Becoming a Rescue Diver not only teaches you how to prevent dive accidents and emergencies — and how to manage them should they arise — but it also consolidates your skills and experience from earlier courses, making you a more confident and accomplished diver.

The PADI Adventure Diver course helps you get more out of diving by introducing you to new types of scuba diving adventures. It’s a great opportunity to work with your instructor to build your scuba diving skills and gain more confidence.

Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. 

Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged dozens, the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will benefit you because boats in various parts of the world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site.

You want to breath naturally through your nose rather then your mouth?

You want freedom to have nothing clenched between your teeth and you want to communicate underwater?

You want to increase thermal protection for your face?

You want to increase your field of vision?

Then the PADI full face mask diver course is right for you

Although you’ve been scuba diving at a site many times before, at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light. If you’ve wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.

Video is the best way to share the sights, sounds, motion and dynamics of the underwater world. If you want to get the best clips and also learn to edit your scuba diving stories to share with friends then the PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty course is for you.
