LEARN ADDITIONAL SKILLS There's always something new and interesting to discover

One of the best things about Scuba Diving is that there is always something new to see, something different to do, or something interesting to discover.  Every diver has their own specific interests, and regardless of what they may be, there is likely some additional training you can do to make that interest easier and safer.

Our staff love nothing more than sharing their own ocean passions, and as a result we can offer a plethora of other courses in areas of more specific interest.  Maybe you’re a wildlife person and want to better understand the creatures you see.  Or perhaps you are looking for new adventures and want to try out some new tech.  Whatever your interest, we can help you.  Here are a few of the more commonly sought after “other” specialty diver courses:

  • Underwater NaturalistWith the PADI Underwater Naturalist Specialty course you’ll see new things, even on the most familiar dive sites. Why? Because when you know more about underwater ecology, you spot creatures & behaviours you previously missed, and thereby gain more from each dive, both in terms of enjoyment and in terms of protecting the environment.
  • Fish Identification: There are so many different species of fish that it can be hard to tell one from another.  The PADI Fish Identification specialty teaches methods for identifying different species, as well as talking about fish interaction techniques and lifecycles.
  • Digital Underwater Photography: Underwater photography is one of the most popular diving specialties, and it has become easier and more fun than ever to capture images of your underwater scuba adventures. During this course you'll discover, methods for getting great shots quickly, principles for good composition of underwater images, and some practical techniques to help you take great photos with your digital camera.
  • Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV): Underwater scooters, or DPVs, are one of the most fun ways to explore further on a dive site, without expending huge effort or burning through your gas.  This course teaches you to use a DPV, and some of the safety and rescue techniques involved in making regular dives with a scooter.
  • Adaptive Support Diver: Do you want to learn how to best support a dive buddy who has a physical or mental challenge? The PADI Adaptive Support Diver course will increase your awareness of divers' varying abilities, and explores adaptive techniques to apply while diving with a buddy who has a disability.
