Do you have years of diving experience and feel it's time to dive deeper? There are a number of PADI advanced specialty diver certifications that not only allow you to log more varied dives, but also explore other activities such as underwater photography.
Let us take a closer look at a few of them:
- Advanced Open Water Diver (AWOD) PADI Certification. Show off your advanced diving skills by earning this PADI certification, which requires a minimum of 20 logged dives. Upon completion of this certification course, you will be a diver who can safely reach depths up to 100 ft (30 m).
- Night Diver Certification. Open Water certification is enough to get this PADI specialty diving certification that focuses on proper use of lights, communication and navigation in the dark. This dive course opens up a whole range of opportunities as you witness the mysterious underwater world at night.
- Underwater Photographer Certification. If you enjoy photography as much as diving, this certification will be your most valuable accomplishment. In addition to all the safety rules of photography, you'll learn about choosing camera systems and composing images underwater. Similar training is offered for underwater videography.
- Master Scuba Diver Certification. If you have reached this point, you have reached the top. Master Scuba Diver is the highest level of PADI certification for recreational divers, making you a true expert in almost all areas of diving. Becoming a Master Scuba Diver is a long process that requires all previous recreational diving certifications, five PADI Specialty Diver certifications and a minimum of 50 logged dives.
