Continuing Education


There are many different aspects to being a good diver. We provide a range of courses to help certified divers become more skilled, confident, and safe in different environments and situations.

Please note for eLearning options, part of your payment will be made to us and part directly to PADI, but the prices listed encompass both payments. Email us for the eLearning links, as there will be a surcharge if your eLearning registration is not affiliated with our shop.

All prices are per person

Haven’t been scuba diving lately? Feeling a bit rusty? The Scuba Review program is just the refresher you need to brush up on your knowledge and skills. A PADI Professional will get you in the water having fun and feeling comfortable again in no time.

Advanced Open Water (eLearning)                                                                                                      Price $458
Exploration, Excitement, Experiences: That’s what the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and the SSI Advanced Adventurer course are all about. You don’t have to be “advanced” to take it – it’s designed to advance your diving, so you can start right after earning your Open Water Diver certification. The course helps build confidence and expand your scuba skills through different Adventure Dives. You develop different diving skills while gaining experience under the supervision of a dive instructor. 
Each Adventure Dive may credit toward the first dive of the corresponding PADI/SSI Specialty Diver Course. If you’re already a PADI Adventure Diver, you only need to complete two more Adventure Dives to earn the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives. 

The other knowledge and skills you get vary with your interest and the adventures you have. You can choose from Peak Performance Buoyancy (highly recommended), Night Diving, Boat Diving, Drift Diving, Multilevel and Computer Diving, Search and Recovery, Fish ID, Underwater Naturalist, and Underwater Photography.

At the end of the course, you will be certified to dive to a maximum depth of 30m/100ft.

Emergency First Response (eLearning)                                                                                         Price      $170
A prerequisite for the Rescue Diver and professional courses, the Emergency First Response course is recognized internationally as an excellent First Aid qualification. The half-day course will teach you cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and emergency care. Course participants learn simple to follow steps for emergency care and practice applying skills in a nonstressful learning environment.

Rescue Diver (eLearning)                                                                                                                         Price $564
The Rescue Diver course is one of the most challenging, yet most rewarding dive courses you will ever take on a recreational level. Why? Because you learn to prevent and manage problems in the water and become more confident in your skills as a diver, knowing that you can help others if needed. The Rescue Diver course prepares you to deal with dive emergencies, minor and major, using a variety of techniques. Through knowledge development and rescue exercises, you learn what to look for and how to respond.  Plus, the course is just fun – it’s serious and it’s challenging, but still allows for lots of laughter in between the focused learning.    

You need to have Emergency First Response Primary and Secondary Care (CPR and First Aid) training within the past 24 months by agencies approved by PADI. If you are not certain if your certification will cover the requirements, send us a picture of the card and we'll check it for you. In case you don't have this training, you can complete it right before the Rescue Diver course.
