ENRICHED AIR NITROX

Enriched Air Nitrox is the next & natural progression for most divers after completing Open Water Certification. Spend more time diving & less time in-between dives…and while diving safer! It’s also a great introduction to Tech Diving.

UNDERWATER NAVIGATOR

One of the most necessary skills every diver should have in their SCUBA tool belt.  With the right skills & training, any diver can learn to find their way underwater regardless the viability.  Don’t just be a diver, become a leader for other divers to follow… Underwater Navigation is the right step.

PEAK PERFORMANCE BUOYANCY

Buoyancy control is a true sign of a diver’s skillset.  Everyone loves finding that certain “sweet spot” when you achieve perfect weightlessness.  Learn from genuine professionals how to intentionally & consistently find neutral buoyancy at every depth with every dive.

NIGHT DIVING

How different can a dive be after the sun goes down?  Well, the difference is night and day!  Watch corals open and come alive… Get captivated by Manta Rays performing acrobatics right over your head while they feed… Rediscover the same old dive sites and see the difference first hand!

SEARCH & RECOVERY

Did you know there’s an estimated $6 BILLION dollars of unrecovered treasure still at the bottom of the Caribbean?  …TRUE!  Why not learn how to search for your own treasure, how to properly recover it, or what to keep an eye out for during you next dive?  With an open eye and skills on what to look for, maybe you’ll make your own fortune…

ALTITUDE DIVING

Envision diving in crystal clear lakes with immaculate visibility and untouched terrain… or descending into a hot spring so comfortable, you’ll think you’re slipping into a warm bath.  Altitude diving is a straight forward course that will show you why additional training is necessary for all dives planned above 1,000ft elevation.  Just another excuse to go diving, even if the ocean is too far away.

DEEP DIVING

Understanding the risks & rewards to diving between 60 and 130ft is an important component to any diver’s tool belt.  This certification will help outline all key factors divers need to understand when diving to the maximum recreational depths.  Here, you’ll learn how to properly plan & execute a deep dive, utilize your gas supply efficiently, and how to identify & deal with narcosis. 

Emergency First Responder – CPR / First Aid

In an emergency, wouldn’t you want a dive buddy to have what it takes to save your life?

Believe me… they would too!  

This certification will provide you with first responder skills and life-saving know-how should the worse happen in & out of the water with nationally recognized CPR/First Aid training.   

ENRICHED AIR NITROX

Dive more – Dive longer – Dive Healthier… with shorter surface intervals!

     The ability to spend more time underwater and need less time between dives makes it appealing to all divers, but did you know it’s another way to dive safer?  Nitrox reduces the nitrogen levels by increasing the amount of oxygen in the cylinder thus, lowering some of the risk that comes with conventional diving.  

     No matter the age or experience level, every diver can dive with Nitrox.

PEAK PERFORMANCE BUOYANCY

Glide fly through the water while making buoyancy adjustments effortlessly without wasting unnecessary gas
