PADI Dive Specialties
Why Become a PADI Specialty Diver?
More scuba diving and more fun sharing what interests you – that’s what taking specialty diver courses is all about. Specialty courses provide tips and hands-on experience that you can implement right away. With almost 30 standard PADI Specialty Diver courses and numerous distinctive specialties, you have lots of choose from – so get going!
All divers will benefit from taking specialty training courses, especially those who are ready to step up to the Master Scuba Diver™ rating, which requires at least five PADI Specialty certifications.
You’ll learn new techniques to add to the experience you already have in a specialty area and have fun fine-tuning your skills and teaching methods.
PADI Specialty Diver Requirements
Enrollment requirements vary with specialties. Check out what Dive Oahu has to offer! If you don’t see a specialty you want to take, see PADI’s complete specialties list at PADI.COM.
Dive Oahu has a variety of schedules to meet most individuals’ needs. Course lengths vary but most specialties can be completed in one weekend. Training is a mix of classroom theory for more technical courses and diving (lots of diving!) from a local beach or from one of Dive Oahu’s US Coast Guard certified dive charter boats. Class size and student to instructor ratio is small to keep the emphasis on diving with our seasoned staff of instructors.
