Scuba Steve's Specialty courses: what will you learn?

Scuba Steve’s offers specialty courses for divers who are interested in learning or honing specific skills and want to advance their mastery of diving. These also qualify as prerequisite courses for those working towards a professional rating. In these courses you will learn skills, techniques, hazards, and the use of special equipment for the specialty you select. This allows you to confidently and comfortably begin mastering a new type of diving. We can certify for the following specialties:

  • Wreck diving

  • Deep diving (130ft max depth)

  • Night/limited visibility

  • Hunting and collecting (spearfishing/lobstering)

  • Underwater digital imaging (photography/video)

  • Underwater naturalist (fish/invert ID, scientific diving)

  • Search and recovery/light salvage

What sets our specialty courses apart?

At Scuba Steve’s, we go above and beyond industry standards to ensure student comfort and safety. We train our students how to dive confidently; we don’t sell certification cards. Some specialty courses only consist of open water dives, we do an academic review and pool session to maximize comfort and confidence with new skills and new situations. We then do a two tank boat trip or shore dive to do your specialty dives in open water. Scuba Steve’s provides the quality difference. Our course takes advantage of online E-Learning so you can do most of the academics at your own pace on your own time. Upon completion, you come dive with us for one full day of in person training. This allows you to maximize your mastery of the new diving concepts and skills as well as your vacation or free time. We will provide all the required scuba gear you need for your specialty course if you do not have your own.
