A
t Sea Dwellers, we offer a variety of PADI Specialty Courses.  Whether you're working on improving your Scuba Skills, or working on your Master Diver, we're here to help you!

Courses offered here at Sea Dwellers are the following:


Fish Identification

2 Dives - 1 Trip
$275.00 - eLearning/Materials not included

“What was that fish?” is a common question heard after a dive.
If you want to be the scuba diver with the answers,
instead of the one asking the questions, then take the
Fish Identification Specialty course. You'll enjoy your dives
even more when you recognize the creatures that you see
and can identify the main fish families and their characteristics.

If you're at least 10 years old and a PADI (Junior)
Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the
PADI - Fish Identification course.

Much of the world's best scuba diving is accessible only by
boat. Whether you've never made a boat dive or you've
logged dozens, the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will
benefit you because boats in various parts of the
world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun
and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site.

If you're a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver
who is at least 10 years old, you can enroll in the Boat Diver course.

Deep Diver

4 Dives - 2 Trips over 2 Days
$395 - eLearning not included

The lure of the deep. There's something exciting
and mysterious about exploring deeper dive sites
while scuba diving. Sometimes it's a wreck that attracts
you below 18 metres/60 feet, and on wall dives it
may be a giant fan or sponge. 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.

If you've earned the PADI Adventure Diver rating or higher,
and you're at least 15 years old, you can enroll in the Deep Diver course.

 


















This specialty course helps you easily achieve great photo
and video results. This course also counts towards the
Advanced Open Water Diver course and your
Master Scuba Diver rating. 

Digital Underwater Photography

2 Dives - 1 Trip
$275 - eLearning & Photography equipment not included











Drift Diver

2 Dives - 1 Trip
$275 - eLearning not included
The PADI Drift Diver Specialty course teaches you
how to enjoy going with the flow as you scuba dive down
rivers and use ocean currents to glide along.
It feels like flying - except that you're underwater using
scuba equipment. Drift diving can be relaxing and
exhilarating at the same time. If this sound like fun,
then the Drift Diver course is for you.

If you're a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least
12 years old, you can enroll in the Drift Diver specialty course.

Want to stay warm? Want to extend your scuba diving season?
Then dive dry. A dry suit seals you off from the water and
keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water.
There is incredible diving in the world's cooler regions and
in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months.
Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries
and dive more places, more often.

If you're at least 10 years old and certified as a
PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can
enroll in the Dry Suit Diver course.

Emergency Oxygen Provider

2-3 Hours Classroom

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. Becoming a PADI Emergency
Oxygen Provider lets you breathe easy knowing
that you can recognize scuba diving illnesses treatable
with emergency oxygen, and are prepared to offer aid.

There are no prerequisites, age restrictions or water sessions
required for this course - it's open to everyone.
Scuba divers, snorkelers and anyone who is
around divers - boat crew, lifeguards, etc. - will benefit from
having this training.

Enriched air, also known as nitrox or EANx,
contains less nitrogen than regular air. Breathing
less nitrogen means you can enjoy longer dives and
shorter surface intervals. No wonder Enriched Air Diver
is the most popular PADI® specialty.


Enriched Air - Nitrox

1 Hour Classroom
$175 - eLearning not included


Recreational Sidemount Diver

1 Confined Session - 3 Dives over 2 Trips
$450 - eLearning & Equipment not included

Having scuba tanks on your back isn't a requirement
for exploring the underwater world. Many scuba divers
have discovered the joy of mounting cylinders on their sides.
Sidemount diving gives you flexibility and streamlining options.
Plus, you don't have to walk with heavy cylinders on your
back - just enter the water, clip them on and go.
Sound interesting? Sign up for the PADI Sidemount Diver Specialty course.

If you're a PADI Open Water Diver who is at least 15 years old,
you can enroll in a PADI Sidemount Diver course.

Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers.
You've seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air
and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more
easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings.
You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy
Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned
as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at
least 10 years old, are eligible to take the
Peak Performance Buoyancy course.

Equipment Specialists

6 Hours Classroom

Don't miss a dive due to minor issues with your scuba
diving equipment. Whether it's a missing o-ring,
wetsuit tear or a broken fin strap, the PADI
Equipment Specialist course teaches you to manage
basic repairs and adjustments. You'll also learn more about
how your gear works, making you more comfortable
with it and better prepared to take care of your investment.

If you're at least 10 years old and certified as a
PADI (Junior) Scuba Diver or higher,
you can enroll in the Equipment Specialist course.

The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems
mysterious, yet so alluring. Although you've been scuba diving
at a site many times before, at night you drop into a whole new
world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.
The scene changes as day creatures retire and nocturnal organisms emerge.
If you've wondered what happens underwater after the sun
goes down, sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are
at least 12 years old, can enroll in the Night Diver specialty course.

Search & Recovery

4 Dives - 2 Trips over 2 Days
$395 - eLearning not included

It happens: People accidentally drop things from docks,
off boats or even while scuba diving. If you've ever lost
something in the water and wanted to go find it, then the
PADI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course is for you.
There are effective ways to search for objects underwater
that increase your chances of success. And there are good
and better methods to bring up small, large or just awkward
items. Search and recovery can be challenging, but a whole lot of fun.

least 12 years old can enroll in the
Search and Recover Diver course.

you know where you are and where you're going.
The PADI Underwater Navigator course fine-tunes
your observation skills and teaches you to more accurately
use your compass underwater. If you like challenges
with big rewards, take this course and have fun finding your way.

Wreck Diver

4 Dives - 2 Trips over 2 Days
$395 - eLearning & Equipment not included

Whether purpose-sunk as an artificial reef for scuba divers,
or lost as the result of an accident, wrecks are fascinating
windows to the past. Ships, airplanes and even cars are
fascinating to explore and usually teem with aquatic life.
Each wreck dive offers a chance for discovery, potentially
unlocking a mystery or spying something others have
missed. The PADI Wreck Diver Specialty course is
popular because it offers rewarding adventures
while observing responsible wreck diving practices.

If you're at least 15 years old and have earned a
PADI Adventure Diver certification or higher,
you can enroll in the Wreck Diver Specialty course.
