Other than taking someone diving, there's only one way to show someone the sounds, motion and dynamics of the underwater world. It's underwater videography - motion imaging that allows you to share and document your underwater adventures. The PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty course shows you how to create videos that are interesting, entertaining and worth watching again and again.

The Ocean Pro Difference
We are partnered with Project AWARE, a global non-profit organization that is Protecting Our Ocean Planet - One Dive at a Time. They are focused on the critical issues of Sharks in Peril and Marine Debris, and we're supporting
them by donating $10 for every student we certify. With this donation, our students recieve Project AWARE certification cards.
Basic Gear Package Included
Many shops believe that you must own your own gear before taking Specialty courses. While we agree it is a good idea, we know gear is expensive! That is why we include a basic rental gear package with the course. The gear package includes a BCD, regulators, tanks, weights, drysuit, hood and boots.
We keep our student to instructional staff ratios low to ensure you can progress a pace that is comfortable for you. We keep our numbers to a max of four students to one instructor or less.
You need to have completed your Open Water Diver certification to enroll in this program.
PADI courses are progressive and build on your previous dive experience. For all of our PADI courses, we require that you have recent experience to enroll.
Your Next Adventure
Part of the secret to getting good video is having great buoyancy skills to capture the footage you're seeking. The Peak Performance Buoyancy course can help you fine tune your skills.
Also, some of the tips and skills you learn from underwater videography can also help you take better underwater photos. Check out the Digital Underwater Photography course.
