Certification is just the start of your Adventures in Diving.

Whether recently certified or a seasoned diver, everyone seeks more out of their Diving. It is always a good idea to not only keep your diving skills refreshed but to also further your experience and Education in Diving through a range of our PADI & CMAS “continuing education” courses and specialties.

While a section of these Advance courses need Confined Water (pool) training, the bulk of the course needs to be completed in Open Water conditions. Skills practiced during Pool Training will be mastered and cemented along with newer Open Water skills for the course at the destination selected.
