Course Objectives: Dive deeper,
and see the greatest shipwrecks
others only read about them in books. Be
safer on all future dives with a better
understanding of all technical aspects
of diving and obtain refined in-water
skills. Diving in the Great Lakes beyond
130’ is no place to "wing it." Do it
right, do it when you are ready, and do
it with the professional teaching staff
of Huron Scuba.
