    AWARE Fish ID

    “What was that fish?” is a common question heard after a dive. You can be the scuba diver with the answers by doing the AWARE – Fish Identification Specialty course. Not only that you’ll learn to identify the fish, you will also learn their characteristics and behaviour, making your dives even more enjoyable.

    Everyone likes to scuba dive or snorkel in warm, clear water on a vibrant coral reef, yet many people know little about what they’re seeing or the importance of reef ecosystems. The AWARE - Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course helps you appreciate the complexity of these habitats and teaches you how you can help conserve these vital systems.

    PADI Deep Diver

    There’s something exciting and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites while scuba diving. There may be a wreck, a school of sharks or an amazing wall dive. Whatever it is, to scuba dive with confidence at depths down to 40 metres/130 feet, you should take the PADI Deep Diver Specialty course.

    PADI Digital Underwater Photographer

    Underwater photography is one of the most popular diving specialties, and with so many underwater cameras to choose from, it has become easier and more fun than ever to capture images of your underwater scuba adventures. The PADI Digital Underwater Photographer course gets you going quickly, whether you use a point-and-shoot camera or a sophisticated dSLR like the pros.

    PADI Diver Porpulsion Vehicle Diver

    DPVs offer a thrilling way for scuba divers to see a lot of underwater territory in a short amount of time. They scoot you through the water allowing you to glide over reefs, buzz around a large wreck or weave through a kelp forest. Whether making a shore or boat dive, a DPV is a great way to see more and have fun doing it.

    PADI Enriched Air Diver

    The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why?

    Knowing how and when to use emergency oxygen is a great skill to have and means you’re ready to help others should the need arise.

    PADI Night Diver

    The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems mysterious, yet so alluring. A familiar site can seem completely different at night owing to the animal’s behaviour and the lighting. If you’ve wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.

    PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy

    Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. With good buoyancy control, you will be able to glide effortlessly and use less air.
