The Blue Horizons PADI Advanced Open Water diver course provides a detailed, in-depth look at all aspects of diving and an introduction to a variety of specialty diving activities. Upon completion, you will be a more confident and comfortable diver, ready for varied diving environments both locally and abroad. We recommend taking this course immediately following, or shortly after, completing your Open Water training dives.

01

The course includes a classroom orientation and open water instruction by one of Blue Horizons' master scuba diver trainers. The 5-dive open water sessions may be conducted locally at DUTCH SPRINGS, or on our New Jersey dive charters for a taste of salt water and local adventure. Many divers take the opportunity to incorporate advanced training into one of our escorted dive trips.

Scuba Tune-Up classes are conducted every first Saturday of each month. Call to schedule your class, today or send us an e-mail.


Are you a certified diver who hasn’t been able to get in the water enough —too much work, not enough play?

Join us on the first Saturday of each month (excludes December) for $10 Bubbles and a Beer. For $10, any certified diver can join us in the pool. Tank is included. Don’t have your own gear yet? For another $10 you will get an entire scuba kit to use.

Cylinder and weights are included with first $10.

Right after the event, we will head to one of the local watering holes/restaurants to grab a beer, some food & hang out. The restaurant will be a family-friendly establishment, welcoming those who can drink beer, as well as those who can only drink root beer. For those who want to drink beer, proper ID and legal age are required.

Come as often as you like; we would love to see you. Blowing bubbles is always a great time, even if it’s just in the pool. Please call to sign up so we know how many are coming.
