Specialty Courses

Have you ever imagined yourself exploring the long abandoned corridors and gangways of a sunken ship? Perhaps you desire a face to face encounter with an arctic seal while sheltered from the frigid waters by a warm and waterless drysuit. Maybe you would like to extend your photography hobby to the underwater world and identify the creatures you capture with the lens of your underwater camera. PADI Specialty Courses allow you to strengthen your diving skills based on your personal interests and hobbies. Many of the specialty courses can be taken as soon as you finish your Open Water Course.
