Enriched Air Nitrox Course

Cost: $150

The waters are calm, temperate and comfortable. The visibility is the best you’ve ever experienced. It’s that perfect day; you know, the one that becomes a part of your “best dive day” stories. You glance down at your dive computer, then up at your buddy with a big regulator smile and you give him the Okay. There’s no need for words–you both know this dive isn’t going to end anytime soon. You are both diving with enriched air nitrox!

What is Enriched Air Nitrox?

Enriched air nitrox is a great tool to help you enjoy longer dives. Enriched air makes this possible because it contains less nitrogen and a higher percentage of oxygen than normal air. This means that you absorb less nitrogen as you dive, giving you more bottom time!

PADI Rescue Diver

Cost: $450

Take the next step and build upon your confidence and experience by taking the PADI Rescue Diver certification!

In the PADI Rescue Diver course, you’ll build on your existing emergency prevention and management skills. Most divers find this course both demanding and rewarding, and at the end, say it’s the best course they’ve ever taken.

You’ll develop accident prevention and management skills that include self-rescue, assisting a buddy and working within a team during an emergency response. Your training will focus on scenarios in which you adapt rescue techniques to your personal strengths and adjust to the situation.

PADI Master Diver Course

Cost: $500

Join the best of the best in recreational scuba diving and live the dive life as a PADI Master Scuba Diver.

When you flash your Master Scuba Diver card, people know that you’ve spent time underwater in a variety of environments and had your share of dive adventures.
