RUGGED "O" - Advanced Open Water - 5 Day Certification Training - Certified Diver Expeditions

In Rugged Oceanographers, you will learn about and explore all of Catalina's unique underwater environments as you earn your PADI Advanced Open Water Certification. Our dive boats speed Rugged "O" participants to the best dive locations on Catalina Island. You will learn and practice advanced dive techniques, such as precision underwater navigation, deep dives to a strange world where light seems to have no source, search and recovery dives, night dives lit only by your dive light and the glowing algae that swirls around you, and much, much more.
