PADI Speciality Courses. Deep Tech offers a number of Padi specialty courses. The Padi specialty courses are designed to develop the necessary skills for an individual to effectively perform designated skills underwater. Padi specialties include but are not limited to:

Aware Fish ID. Have you ever been scuba diving and asked yourself, "What was that?” The PADI Project AWARE Fish Identification Specialty course provides you with the fish identification basics so that next time, you know the answer.

Boat Diver. Whether you’ve never made a boat dive or you’ve logged dozens, the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course can benefit almost every diver because different boats in different parts of the world do things differently.

Digital Underwater Photographer. Underwater photography is one of the most popular diving specialties, and the rise of digital underwater photography has made it easier and more fun than ever. This is why there are actually two PADI underwater photography courses.

Deep Diver. After your first few scuba dives, you soon want to explore a bit deeper. There’s something exciting and mysterious about the depth that attracts dives.The fun part about this course is the opportunity to explore the deep. It’s exhilarating.

DPV. DPVs offer a thrilling way to see a lot of underwater territory in a brief amount of time. They scoot you through the water without kicking. Whether making a shore dive or diving from a boat, a DPV is a great way to see more and have a blast doing it.

Dry Suit Diver. Wanna stay warm and toasty on a dive? Then dive dry. Yes! Unlike a wetsuit, a dry suit seals you off from the outside water and that keeps you warm! Even in surprisingly cold water.

Drift Diver. The PADI Drift Diver Specialty course introduces you to the coolest magic carpet ride you’ll ever experience. This course shows you how to enjoy rivers and ocean currents by “going with the flow,” staying with your dive partner, communicating with the dive boat and knowing where you are the whole time.

Enriched Air Diver. The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba diving course, and it’s easy to see why. Scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives.

Multi Level Diver & Computer. Do you want to maximize your dive times? (Of course). Want to get the most out of your dive computer and The Wheel (naturally). Then the PADI Multilevel Diver Specialty course is for you.

Night Diver. As the sun sets, you don your dive gear, slip on your scuba mask and bite down on your dive regulator. A deep breath and you step off the boat – into the underwater night

Peak Performance  Buoyancy. What is neutral buoyancy? Scuba divers like to be neutrally buoyant so they neither sink nor float. It can be a tricky thing. Divers who’ve mastered the highest performance levels in buoyancy stand apart. You’ve seen them underwater.

Underwater Navigator. Be the diver everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the PADI Underwater Navigator Specialty course.

Underwater Videographer. Other than taking someone diving, there’s only one way to show someone the sounds, motion and dynamics of the underwater world: video.
