Nitrox Certification Course   $149.00

This half day course introduces you to
Recreational Nitrox diving

Nitrox is a different mixture of Oxygen and Nitrogen than the air we normally breathe which contains about 21% Oxygen and about 79% Nitrogen. By enriching the air with a small amount of additional Oxygen we effectively reduce the amount of Nitrogen available for adsorption during a dive. This means that with equivalent dive times, a Nitrox diver will have less dissolved Nitrogen in their tissue groups than the air breathing dive partner. The lower Nitrogen level allows divers longer no decompression limits at recreation depths, shorter surface intervals between dives, and less physiologic stress on the tissues of the body.

Advanced Open water Certification Course 

This course requires a minimum of 4 specialty courses and divers must have 25 logged dives. This is a detailed course that requires the commitment, time, and effort of each diver. Each Student will have the opportunity to dive in several challenging conditions under the direct supervision of the instructor. Upon completion of the Advanced Open Water course you will be a self sufficient, comfortable, and confident…Advanced Diver!
