Specialty Diver Course

The A-1 Specialty Diver Course

Divers want to stay underwater as long as safely possible, see amazing critters, and “fly” like a Manta Ray, without touching the reef.

Our Specialty Diver Course will increase your comfort underwater, reduce gas consumption, prolong your dives, decrease your surface interval, enhance your diving experience, and so much more.

The combination of the Enriched Air Nitrox (EAN) and Perfect Buoyancy specialties are practical, rewarding, and sure to make you a better diver. AND, this amazing transformation will take placed in ONE EVENING!

One more thing, once you digitally log (12) verified dives in your digital logbook, you will receive the SSI Specialty Diver Recognition.  For free!!
