River Diver Swift Water Specialty at Huron Scuba, Ann Arbor Michigan
River Diver Course
Have a terrific time diving off Sarnia and/or Port Huron in this special River Diver specialty program. River diving is a popular way to keep diving year-round, as the rivers rarely freeze, and is a great way to hunt artifacts both locally in the Great Lakes region and in fossil-rich areas like the Cooper River in South Carolina.

The River Diver course teaches you to safely carry out dives in rivers with low (or sometimes no, if a freighter goes overhead in the St. Clair River!) visibility. Topics covered include specific hazards, techniques, equipment modifications, dive planning, and contingency plans.  At least 3 dives included.
