Improve Your Dive Skills
As a certified scuba diver you’ve already experienced the thrill of exploring parts of the underwater world, but know there’s more to discover. Whether you’re looking for new dive adventures, to improve your scuba skills, or both at once, taking another PADI dive course will help you gain more confidence and meet more dive buddies.
In the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course, there’s a long list of scuba specialty dives to try. Fish identification, boat diving, altitude diving, drift diving, sidemount diving, search and recovery, wreck diving, plus about 12 more. You do five different dives all under the expert guidance of your PADI Instructor. No formal classroom session, just a lot of diving.
If you already know what type of specialty diving interests you – underwater photography, wreck diving, deep diving etc. – then sign up for that PADI Specialty Diver course.
