What’s Next!? 

Don’t be alarmed, we’re not overly excited about your question, but here at Virginia Scuba, we’ve developed a unique program that surpasses the typical response of taking the Advanced Open Water course or trying out a speciality. With “What’s Next!?”  You will complete 5 training dives and receive certifications in three specialities we feel every diver needs, regardless of which direction diving takes you. But what if you’ve finished part one? Check out the second part of the program “What’s Next Deep!?”  If you’re interested in obtaining your deep diver specialty and one additional certification, this is the program for you! Plus, after completing both parts you will receive your advanced open water certification on top of 5 specialties!

If you’re interested a specialty that you can’t complete in the area or if you’ve finished both parts of “What’s Next!?” and your ready to put those skills to work, why don’t you take a trip with us? Check out our travel page for more info!
