Featured Adventure Dives:

Deep Dive (Mandatory)

We will learn how to safely plan and execute a deep dive to a maximum depth of 30m (100ft) paying special attention to how depth impacts gas consumption, narcosis, buoyancy, allowable bottom time, light and temperature. We will also learn how to deal with emergency decompression. This is Dive 1 of the Deep Specialty Course.

Navigation Dive (Mandatory)

Visibility is a huge variable in every dive you do. Learning how to use a compass with precision is of utmost importance to developing true comfort underwater. We will learn how to use time, kick cycles, natural navigation and a compass to maximize situational awareness while we dive. This is Dive 1 of the Navigation Specialty Course.

Peak Performance Buoyancy Dive (Elective)

Buoyancy is the most important skill in diving. During the PPB Dive we will learn how to precisely weight ourselves based on environmental and equipment considerations. We work on buoyancy fundamentals like controlled ascents, descents and how body and weight position affect the way we float. This is Dive 1 of the Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Course.

Search & Recovery Dive (Elective)

We will learn how to use different search patterns to find lost objects underwater. Once found we will learn how to safely secure and bring these objects to the surface by using different knots, ropes and lift bags. This is Dive 1 of the Search & Recovery Specialty Course.

Wreck Dive (Tobermory)

We will learn how to safely execute a wreck dive by paying special attention to orientation, hazards, historical significance and buddy procedure. This is Dive 1 of the Wreck Diver Specialty Course.

Delayed Surface Marker Buoy & Drift Dive (Elective)

Planning drift dives can be logistically difficult and requires experience and familiarity with the dive sites. On this dive we learn the fundamentals of executing a successful drift dive, how to properly plan and execute good buddy procedure and how to deploy surface markers from depth to avoid losing contact with the boat.
