PADI Specialties

Did you know that scuba diving has many different focuses where you can improve your skills?

Some examples include night diving or limited visibility, learning how to navigate with a compass, diving to 40m, drysuit diving, or different configurations such as sidemount. It’s all possible at Sea Spirit Diving Resort. Once the PADI Open Water Diver course is completed, there are plenty of specialties to learn! Most specialties can be done in a few days, with 2-4 open water dives included. Most specialties follow a similar set-up. Theory is completed with an (e)-manual containing knowledge reviews, and the rest is just diving! Find out what interests you.
