Most of these Specialties and Adventure dives can be completed at Dutch Springs, other require travel to specific destinations and can be completed with us on one of our many Group Trips offered throughout the year. Prices, diving requirement, classroom commitments and pool dives vary from one specialty to another. Please contact us to inquire as to the specifics of the programs you are interested in.

Also to keep in mind Adventure Dives and Specialties can be credited toward Adventures in Diving certification as well. Adventure Dives can also be credited toward the corresponding Specialty if pursuit of full certification in a given Specialty is desired. All of this allows the student to pro-rate class tuition based of credit of past training, reducing cost and encouraging continuing education.
