There are hundreds of wrecks a short drive from Blue Horizons — some of the most exciting diving adventures anywhere. The Wreck Diver Specialty course introduces divers to wreck diving and helps to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for safe and fun wreck diving.

The best classroom for this course is right here in our backyard — more divable wrecks than anywhere in the country. Our instructors have logged thousands of dives on wrecks off Jersey, and around the world. This is true adventure diving.

This Specialty certification also counts as one of five Specialty certifications required for Master Scuba Diver certification.

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.
