Continuing Dive Education
To be a diver that is completely prepared for any diving situation that may occur, you will need the experience and training gained from Specialty Courses. Taking our courses is your chance to begin a journey that explores beyond the surface of diving. Each course will provide you with the proper knowledge and skills to truly consider yourself an experienced diver. Our goal is to prepare you for the adventure that lies ahead, as well as make sure you have a good time doing it! With our professional staff, we are able to conduct numerous continuing education (or specialty) dive classes at all of our locations.
|SSI Advanced Adventurer|
|The optional Advanced Adventurer can be the entry to continuing education, especially for those divers who cannot decide which specialty courses they want to learn.
