Since getting my PADI Master SCUBA Diver rating I decided to add on some more PADI specialty classes over the next couple weeks:
- Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specialty
- Wreck Diver Specialty
- Night Diving Specialty
- Underwater Navigation Specialty
- Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty
This will give me a total of 10 PADI specialties. Eventually I will get all of the specialties that are available in Hawaii, unfortunately a few of the specialties I will have to travel to the mainland to get (ice diver, altitude diver, etc.). If I am going to be an instructor, I need experience in all of the specialties so why not get started on them now.
The first specialty class I will be doing will be the Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) Specialty this Monday afternoon. I already own 2 of the SEA DOO Explorer X DPV’s that I use almost daily while diving so getting that one out of the way seemed like a “no-brainer” to me.
I will be scheduling the Wreck, Night, Navigation & Buoyancy specialty classes around my busy schedule over the next 2 weeks. I am hoping to have all of them finished by the 21st.
