Speciality Scuba Diving Courses

Once you’ve qualified as an Open Water diver, you will want to further develop your skills. Below are the speciality scuba diving courses that we offer for recreational divers.

All of the ScubaQuest recreational diving courses are delivered utilising SDI & PADI online e-learning theory packages. Experience has shown that the majority of students find this approach is better suited to their individual learning needs being more flexible, easier to align with their available time and the pace of their learning.

The e-learning packages are specifically developed to track progress and allow your instructor to identify areas for further discussion during the classroom reviews before the practical elements of the course begin.

Traditional classroom-based theory is also offered when e-learning is not possible or suitable. Please discuss these options with your instructor at the time of booking.
