continue your scuba education with padi specialty courses
We offer many PADI Specialty courses so there will be something to interest everyone. There are many benefits of taking Specialties. Specialties let you engage in new activities and try new equipment under the guidance of an experienced instructor. You will extend your diving abilities and have increased awareness of the underwater environment. If you have already done one of the specialty dives as part of the Advanced course, you can credit this towards the specialty, and vice versa, saving you time and money. Course prices include academic materials and certification fees.
Enriched Air Nitrox = $120 The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty
scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives
you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives.
If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds
appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.
