Build your skills and confidence and extend your dive limits with ECD’s Deep Diving Program!

Ever wonder what it’s like to descend over the wrecks off New England’s Coastline? From the F/V Patriot in Stellwagen Bank to the U-853 off Block Island, these local treasures are beyond of the reach of Open Water dives. Perhaps the majestic walls and pinnacles are more to your taste? Either way, these sites tempt us by hosting a myriad of marine species: massive schools of bass and bluefish, Red Anemones, Wolffish, Badge Stars, and Scarlet Psolus Sea cucumbers.

The program covers use of simple but effective redundant gas supplies, essential dive planning tools, and the safe use of delayed/deployable surface marker buoys (DSMBs).

“The ECD Deep class fully prepared me to explore the amazing New England deep water wrecks and made me feel comfortable with diving beyond the OW limits given the knowledge and skills we acquired during the class” -Bing Shui, Deep Diver certified in 2020
