Drysuit Course- $175.00- The SDI Diving Drysuit course is designed for those who have purchased a Drysuit and wish to shorten the learning curve involved with diving dry. There is increased task loading involved with using a drysuit. Having the drysuit certification will also allow you to rent a suit in places where such a certification is required. The course involves classroom and a pool session followed by 2-3 open water dives. During the course you'll learn proper weighting with the suit, buoyancy control and trim, and how to use the suit and BC to compliment each other. There are also emergency procedures that will be covered as well as rescue of a diver who is in a dry suit. Divers may rent gear or are free to use their own equipment. Back Plates and Wings are welcome as are double cylinders! Dive Sidemount? No problem!
Nitrox Course- 135.00- The SDI Diving Nitrox course will allow you to take advantage of what was once known as VooDoo Gas! It is nothing more than breathing air with an oxygen content greater than 21% up to 40%. You'll spend 3-4 hours in the classroom, learn how nitrox is blended and how to use an analyzer to verify the contents or your cylinder. Nitrox will allow you to reduce your surface intervals or lengthen your bottom times before reaching your no decompression limits.There are depth restrictions however and you will learm about these as well. There is a common misconception that with Nitrox you can dive deeper. This is false and we'll see why in the course.
Search and Recovery - 395.00 -Search and Recovery I from UDM Aquatics will teach you the methods used to locate and salvage small to medium sized objects such as fishing rods, small boat anchors, wallets, glasses, trolling motors and perhaps small chests of pirate treasure! Use of lines and reels for search patterns, use of lift bags, determining a search area, and other necessary techniques will be covered. Documentation of the site will also be covered. For this course the SDI Advanced Adventure course offered by UDM Aquatics or equivalent is strongly encouraged as well as Underwater Navigation. Course requires 4 dives.
