Specialty Courses

Description 

The PADI Specialty courses are for people who want to improve their skills and knowledge in very different fields but all have one thing in common: the underwater world.

PADI Specialty courses give you the opportunity to go into more detail within certain disciplines in scuba diving, under the guidance of a dedicated specialty instructor. In 1 or 2 days you will cover the theory and execute your training dives.
