We will be conducting dives at the lake with pool & classroom sessions as well. In this small setting you will gain practical diving experience & increase your confidence in your skills & overall knowledge.

This program allows you to experience five different open water dives from five SSI Specialty programs without requiring you to complete the entire Specialty. If you are unsure of your next step, this is the perfect way to advance your dive skills and experience, and to identify which Specialty programs interest you.

Perfect Buoyancy:
Buoyancy is the hardest skill for most new divers to master. Without it, you could damage the reef, stir up the bottom or disturb marine life. The Perfect Buoyancy class teaches all the skills needed to be neutrally buoyant such as proper weighting, proper breathing and adjustment underwater.

The navigation course will teach you how to use a compass as well as natural navigation to find your way through the water. This skill is important for all divers to learn because it is used on every single dive in every different environment.

Night/Limited Visibility:
Night diving opens up opportunities to see a completely new world of sea creatures. The class teaches you about additional gear needed & new skills for diving at night. Once you finish, night diving becomes fun & exciting.

Deep Diving:
Understanding how your body reacts to increased depth and pressure is necessary for safely enjoying deep dives. The class allows you the opportunity to experience deep dives while under the direct supervision of an instructor. Once you learn to utilize the extra gear and knowledge, you can experience dives that are both new and challenging!

The Advanced Adventurer classes meet on Tuesdays for pool skills as well as group discussions & then on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays at the lake for open water diving.
