Specialties Certifications

The World is Your Oyster

For every pearl of wisdom you gain in a Specialty Program, the Underwater world becomes more accessible. Getting the pearl requires the oyster to be opened.  Be open, and Malibu Divers can take you there.

These specialty programs can be started after your PADI (or equivalent) Open Water certification or with a few additional requirements. Please check each Specialty for any special age or other pre-requisites or contact us for more information.  Your instructor will perform an assessment of your diving skills and comfort level in-water and generally assess your dive knowledge.

Also - are there other more Advanced Specialties you are looking for or are interested in?  Advanced Specialties are the next level of Specialties that require you to have Advanced Open Water certification or additional training and/or experience level (or equivalent) as a prerequisite to starting these courses.

Please note:

we include all the educational materials AND your certification card in our Specialty programs. 
• In most cases, gear rental (50% discount while training), tank rental / fills, boats and trips to Catalina Island are not included unless specifically mentioned. 
• We can also conduct many Specialties at our local Malibu beaches when good dive, small surf conditions prevail.  
• In some cases, certain Specialties such as deep, wreck, boat etc., are only available from a dive boat or ferry to Catalina and those costs are not included in the program fee.  
• Also, depending on the Specialty program you choose, it may require the purchase of specific dive equipment (such as a compass, or dive light). 

If you have any questions, send us an email or give us a call to discuss.
