Rescue Safety Courses at Blue Horizons Dive Center - the premier Northeast scuba shop in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania metro area

Blue Horizons Dive Center

The PADI Rescue Diver Course provides the Advanced Open Water Diver with an opportunity to improve self-rescue skills while also learning to safely assist other divers in distress. The course stresses personal safety and self-awareness while developing the ability to identify and prevent many diving problems. This is one of the most fun and rewarding courses offered.

In addition to being a PADI Course Director, Nick Jenny sits on the DAN review committee. Keith Dalton, a course director and instructor trainer, is trained to teach the full complement of DAN courses.

COURSE DATES


Please, contact a Blue Horizons Training Consultant for details. Call to schedule your class today, or click the e-mail button, below.


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.
