Advanced and Specialty Diver Courses


Your beginning scuba course was just that: a beginning. Ending your education there is like bragging that you’ve graduated the sixth grade. Just as a grade-school education isn't going to cut it in the job market, beginning courses cannot adequately prepare you to take advantage of all that diving offers.

Fortunately, we offer a wide assortment of Advanced and Specialty Diver courses that allow you to custom-tailor your education to fit your individual interests and needs.

Available courses include:

Advanced Diver Course


If you thought learning to dive was fun and rewarding, don’t stop now. Advanced training makes you safer and more confident, and can introduce you to a world of specialized diving activities. More…

Underwater Naturalist Course


It’s the most common question divers ask: What is that fish called? The opportunity to see brilliantly colored tropical fish and other marine creatures in their natural environment is among the chief reasons many of us dive. More…

Boat Diver Course


The world’s best diving almost always takes place from boats. This is why specialized training in boat diving is so helpful. Boat Diver training can save you time, effort (and embarrassment). And the best part is, you get to go boat diving as part of the course. More…

Peak Buoyancy Control Course


Short of remembering to breathe and equalize, there is no skill more critical to divers than controlling buoyancy — and no skill more difficult for new divers to master. Unfortunately, the average diver’s buoyancy skills are an embarrassment — and make divers a danger to themselves and the environment. More…

Deep Diver Course


The recommended depth limit for divers with Advanced training is 100 feet. The absolute depth limit for any recreational diver is 130 feet. What prepares you for that extra 30 feet? This course does. It’s a good foundation for tech diver training, too. More…

Drift Diver Course


Why fight the current when you can use it to fly effortlessly across miles of bottom? Drift diving is a popular activity in many parts of the world. It eliminates most of the work and many of the hazards associated with diving in strong currents. And, it’s fun. Lots of fun. More…

Drysuit Diver Course


Dry suits can make diving more enjoyable any time water temperatures drop below the mid 70s — or when air temperatures are cold. Dry suits open the door to activities such as deeper wreck diving and ice diving, and can extend your diving season well beyond just the warmest months of the year. More…

Enriched Air Nitrox Diver


Few things have revolutionized recreational diving in the past decade as much as the introduction of Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx). Nitrox is nothing more than the air you are breathing right now with some additional oxygen added to reduce the concentration of nitrogen. More…

Equipment Specialist Course


Your dive equipment represents a substantial investment. It makes sense to learn how to get the best return on that investment. This is what the Equipment Specialist Course is all about. More…

Multilevel/Computer Diver


More than any other piece of equipment in the past 20 years, computers have revolutionized how people dive. Due to their ability to track exposure to reduced levels of nitrogen at shallower depths, computers can allow us to take advantage of substantially longer bottom times and shorter surface intervals. More…

Underwater Navigator Course


The Underwater Navigator course builds on the navigation skills you acquire as part of the Open Water Diver course. It provides an introduction to complex compass patterns, mapmaking and using navigation in conjunction with other specialty activities. More…

Night Diver Course


Diving at night, however, entails more than just grabbing a light and going. Special planning, preparation, equipment and communication skills are needed — among others. Fortunately, the Night Diver course can provide you with these skills in a very short period of time. More…

Search and Recovery Diver Course


Nearly every diver dreams of finding sunken treasure. Real treasure, however, is less likely to be gold doubloons and more likely to come in the form of lost wallets, golf balls or your aunt’s gold necklace that she carelessly let slip overboard. More…

Underwater Photographer Course


If you think the digital era has revolutionized photography out of the water, wait until you discover what it has done for underwater imaging. No longer do you need costly underwater cameras, expensive strobes or pricey lenses to capture breathtaking underwater images. More…

Wreck Diver Course


With a rich maritime history and an aggressive artificial reef program, our region is a wreck diver’s paradise. Wreck diving offers something for divers of nearly every experience level. In this course, you will learn how to protect, preserve and promote understanding or wrecks. More…

Master Scuba Diver


The Master Scuba Diver certification is the highest non-leadership rating in recreational diving. It is not a course you take, but rather a certification achieved by obtaining your Advanced, Rescue and five Specialty Diver certifications. More…
