Drysuit Diving

 

Enjoy diving ... also in winter time!

 

Comfortably warm and a must on very long (technical) dives, a dry suit is really necessary while diving cold waters.

 

Fitting a dry suit for the first time requires some guidance and help. The suit will enable you to dive in a comfortable way in cold water, but it needs to fit perfectly....and on top of that you need to learn to dive with it.

 

We will teach you dry suit techniques, how to stay dry and how to control your buoyancy.

What is the advantage to use Argon and how can you keep your dry suit in top condition after 100 dives?

 

You can take this course with your own drysuit or use a rental suit.

Enriched Air Nitrox

Diving EANx means more time under water and you are diving in a safer way than diving with normal air.

 

You need to be a qualified Nitrox diver in order to be allowed to dive with enriched air nitrox.

 

We will teach you why and how you can dive longer with EANx. You will learn all advantages and some disadvantages of nitrox, how it is made and which are its limitations.

Navigation

Help.... I am lost !

 

A GPS won't operate under water, so we need to be able to orientate while diving. The compass is our buddy in underwater navigation.

 

You will be taught how a compass works and you get practice. First we teach how to use it on land, and only when you control this, we will practice it under the water.

 

We also explain how to use the natural environment to find your way back on a dive. If you use this in combination with your compass skills you will never get lost

Fullface mask

Under water communication?

Hand signals are not allways sufficient! With a full face mask you have more possibilities to communicate.

And what do you think of a very wide view, no more cold water in your face, no more painfull cold sinusses, no more water in your mask, etc.

 

We will teach you everthing about the full face mask. We'll teach you rescue techniques, bail out techniques and how to change the mask underwater.

We will show how to maintain the mask and keep it in good shape.

 

This specialty gives you the experience of diving a different dimension!

Bouyancy control

Swim like a fish in the water.

 

What is perfect buoyancy?  

The ultimate goal of a diver is floating in the water with a perfect buoyancy.

 

If you control your buoyancy in a perfect way, you will consume less air and you dive in a more comfortable way.

 

We teach you to control your buoyancy by playing funny under water games and excercises. In this way you learn how to trim perfectly and to dive with maximum comfort.

We teach you how to make use of currents rather than fighting them.

You will learn how to recognise currents whilst observing the surface.

 

Enjoy currents by "going with the flow", not to loose your buddy and to maintain contact with the boat for the pick-up at the end of the dive.

 

Drift dives are very special, because the biggest chance to see really big fish is during drift dives. Sharks love currents and we love sharks!
