Divers Alert Network (DAN) Emergency Hazardous Marine Life Injuries First Aid Safety Courses at Blue Horizons Dive Center - the premier Northeast scuba shop in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania metro area

Blue Horizons Dive Center


Divers may experience unintentional encounters with fire coral, jellyfish and other marine creatures. When a person enters the marine environment, there is a chance of being stung, bitten or cut. This course will teach students where to expect potentially hazardous marine life encounters and how to provide first aid when injuries occur. The more a diver knows about the marine environment, the greater the chance for having safe, memorable dives.

This DAN First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries course teaches divers how to identify and avoid potentially harmful marine life. It also provides first aid skills to reduce these injuries and discomfort.

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 and January) 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.
