Each specialty, with the exception of Underwater Photography and Videographer, will cost $35.00 per dive or $50.00 for two specialty dives conducted during the same trip. The U/W Photography and Videographer course is $50.00 (two dives) plus $35.00 for camera rental. Camera rental includes film. Film processing is not included.

You may complete any portion of the required dives for each specialty course atHudson's Family Dive Center or any other PADI facility. You will receive your certification upon completion of all required dives.
The cost of the specialty dives is in addition to boat fees and rental equipment fees. There is an additional PADI certification fee upon completion of a specialty course.
