Enriched Air
PADI's most popular speciality course - diving enriched air lets you safely extend your no decompression limits, which means more time underwater and shorter surface intervals - so you can get back in the water sooner!!

Combination of natural and compass navigation. Imagine being able to find your way back to the spot where you started the dive from and re-visit interesting sites down below that you found on previous dives.

Deep Diver 18-40m
Its not as some people think, mysterious and intimidating, in fact, this course teaches you how to plan & carry out deep dives safely and confidently. From historic shipwrecks to dramatic walls, training as a deep diver opens up a whole world of exploration.

Night Diving
Experience the thrill and adventure of night diving. Plunge into an exciting yet mysterious environment where you will see aquatic life and underwater surroundings in a new light.

Search & Recovery
Whether you are looking to recover family heirlooms, sunken treasure or grandpa's dentures, this course will teach you appropriate search patterns along with different methods for recovering and bringing to the surface lost or sunken objects.

Drift Diving
Ever wanted to experience underwater flying? Then this is the course for you. The sheer exhilaration is something all divers should try, once you try it, you want to do it on all your dives.

Wreck Diving
Where the past meets the present, experience the rush of excitement that few other dives can duplicate, the challenge of discovering, exploring and entering wrecks is something few divers can resist.

Peak Performance Buoyancy
It's what separates great divers from good divers, extend your bottom time, interact longer with marine life, spend longer exploring the underwater world, prolong the life of your dive gear.

Altitude Diving
Dive more challenging dive sites while you satisfy your curiosity for "I wonder what's down there?" The fun part about altitude diving is that you can explore places many people have never seen.
