If you've taken your Open Water Scuba Diver course and are now ready to expand your knowledge but would like to see what is out there first. then the Advanced course is for you! This course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different "adventure" dives. The course will give you an overview of five different specialties. Two of the required specialties are the Deep Diver and Navigation Diver specialties which are the foundations of continuing diver education. During the Deep dive, you will learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving. The Navigation dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time. The remaining specialty dives you can opt for include:

  • Buoyancy Control

  • Boat Diver

  • Drift Diver

  • Photography

  • Fish Identification

  • Wrecks

  • Night

  • And More!

Beyond using basic scuba equipment, you might also use specialized dive gear depending on the Adventure Dives you choose. 

This course is intended to introduce you to each of the five specialties selected: not complete comprehension of the chosen specialty. One dive from each of the chosen specialties may apply towards the completion of a specialty certification.
