Dive Against Debris Diver

7,500
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • 2 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water Certification
Make a difference on every dive by activating your inner citizen scientist. During the Dive Against Debris® Diver Specialty course, you’ll learn how ocean plastic and trash cleanups not only keep your local dive sites healthier, but also how to contribute to a global database that documents our planet’s marine debris problem. Under the guidance of your instructor, you’ll participate in a Dive Against Debris survey and turn your passion for the underwater world into real action.

Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver

10,000
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • 2 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water Certification
Enriched air, also known as nitrox or EANx, contains less nitrogen than regular air. Breathing less nitrogen means you can enjoy longer dives and shorter surface intervals. No wonder Enriched Air Diver is the most popular PADI® specialty.

Peak Performance Buoyancy

7,500
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • 2 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water Certification
Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You've seen them underwater. 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. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.

Night Diver

9,000
Per Student
  • 2 Nights Training
  • 3 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water Certification
The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems mysterious, yet so alluring. 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. The scene changes as day creatures retire and nocturnal organisms emerge. If you've wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.

Deep Diver

12,500
Per Student
  • 2 Day Training
  • 4 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Adventure Diver or Advanced Open Water Certification
When you dive below 18 metres/60 feet, there are special safety considerations. If you're ready to expand your boundaries, a PADI Instructor will help you gain the skills and confidence to explore to a maximum depth of 40 metres/130 feet.

Emergency O2 Provider

6,500
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • Classroom - Non-Diving course
  • No Diver Prerequisite
PADI® Emergency Oxygen Provider prepares you to offer aid and teaches you to recognize scuba diving injuries and illnesses requiring emergency oxygen. This is an excellent course for scuba divers, boat crew, lifeguards, freedivers, mermaids or anyone who spends time in and around water. No age restrictions or water sessions required.

Search and Recovery Diver

12,500
Per Student
  • 2 Days Training
  • 4 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water Certification
The next time someone loses an item underwater, you can be the hero that finds the missing object. In the PADI® Search and Recovery course, you’ll learn how to find lost objects underwater. You’ll practice different types of underwater search patterns and learn how to use a lift bag as you plan and execute mock search operations.

Fish Identification

7,500
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • 2 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water Certification
“What was that fish?” is a common question heard after a dive. If you want to be the scuba diver with the answers, instead of the one asking the questions, then take the Fish Identification Specialty course. You'll enjoy your dives even more when you recognize the creatures that you see and can identify the main fish families and their characteristics. If you're at least 10 years old and a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the PADI - Fish Identification course.

Delayed Surface Marker Buoy (DSMB) Diver

7,500
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • 2 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water diver Certfication
Boats and currents are two common factors associated with many dive sites. Boaters don't always recognize that divers are in the area and current can carry you further than expected. Launching a delayed surface marker buoy (DSMB) before you surface can alert others to your location in advance of your ascent. Adding another layer of safety, you can also use the DSMB line to complete your safety stop, which is advantageous in a current or when there are no other visual references. Take this course to learn about all the beneficial uses of a DSMB.

Equipment Specialist

6,500
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • Classroom - Non-Diving course
  • Requires Scuba Diver Certification
Don't miss a dive due to minor issues with your scuba diving equipment. Whether it's a missing o-ring, wetsuit tear or a broken fin strap, the PADI Equipment Specialist course teaches you to manage basic repairs and adjustments. You'll also learn more about how your gear works, making you more comfortable with it and better prepared to take care of your investment.

Digital Underwater Photographer

7,500
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • 2 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water diver Certfication
During the PADI® Digital Underwater Photographer course, you’ll learn how to take underwater photos you’ll be proud to share with others. Avoid beginner mistakes and shorten the learning curve with tips from the pros. Learn how to use underwater photography lights (strobes), avoid backscatter and enhance color.

Wreck Diver

12,500
Per Student
  • 2 Days Training
  • 4 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Adenture Diver Certfication
  • For the purposes of training, only simulated wreck dives only
Whether purpose-sunk as an artificial reef for scuba divers, or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating windows to the past. Ships, airplanes and even cars are fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life. Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially unlocking a mystery or spying something others have missed. The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course is popular because it offers rewarding adventures while observing responsible wreck diving practices.

Cavern Diver

19,000
Per Student
  • 2 Days Training
  • 1 Confined Training Dive
  • 4 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Advanced Open Water Diver Certfication
Caverns exist in many areas where scuba divers venture - from freshwater springs to volcanic island walls and limestone coasts. In these locations you'll find large, dark spaces that seem incredibly inviting, yet are potentially dangerous. The PADI Cavern Diver Specialty course gives you the knowledge and skills to explore caverns correctly - allowing you to enter far enough for adventure, but staying within the light zone for an easy exit to open water.

Full Face Mask Diver

19,000
Per Student
  • 1 Day Training
  • 1 Confined Training Dive
  • 2 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Open Water Diver Certfication
Working divers, such as public safety divers, use full face masks because they protect the eyes and nose from contaminants in the water, provide comfort in cold water, and allow for communication. If you're interested public safety diving, scientific diving, or venturing into extremely cold-water, then learning to dive with a full face mask is definitely for you. Because full face masks allow you to breathe from your nose, they are also beneficial for those who have difficulty using standard scuba masks. Diving with a full face mask offers a different experience and that alone may be reason to give it a try.

Sidemount (Recreational) Diver

19,000
Per Student
  • 2 Day Training
  • 1 Confined Training Dive
  • 3 Open Water Dives
  • PADI Requires Open Water Diver Certfication
  • Dive Funatics require that you have at least 25 logged dives
  • Requires assessment before admitting to the course
  • May require remediation as assessed by a sidemount instructor prior to admission to the course
Discover the balance and efficiency of sidemount scuba diving with your PADI dive instructor. Many divers find sidemount tanks are more comfortable and easier to put on in the water. Sidemount diving is also beneficial for divers who want improved balance and prolonged dives.

Self Reliant Diver

19,000
Per Student
  • 2 Days Training
  • 4 Open Water Dives
  • Requires Advanced Open Water Certification
  • Requires 100 Logged dives
  • Requires skills assessment before acceptance into the course
  • May require remediation as assessed by a self reliant instructor prior to admission to the course
With proper training, equipment and the right attitude to accept the risks involved in independent diving, an experience diver can responsibly engage in dives without a buddy. Self-reliant diving is an adventure activity that is not for everyone, but does have its place. If you have the mental discipline and commitment to learn and follow self-reliant diving techniques, you'll bolster your skills and confidence when diving alone, in a dive pair or as part of a team.
