Usually diving season entails being able to dive only in summer or late spring, when the water is warm enough. Being a good holiday fun, summer diving on the other hand excludes possibilities to face underwater world in its other states, especially when its changing. Dry costume driving enables a diver to experience marvelous underwater world during colder seasons at the same time preventing driver from catching cold.

During this course you learn how to recognize diving illnesses treatable by emergency oxygen, properly setup equipment and administer emergency oxygen. It is extremely important to correctly administer 100% Oxygen to an injured diver, so their condition gets better quickly.
One of the easiest ways to dive is to take a boat along so that you have a place to jump from and at the same time a place to come back to. Being easy boat diving still requires some skills such as choosing a boat, “parking” it in the correct place, and being able to come back to it (at the very least, telling your boat from others that could be floating around). You can easily learn those skills at our boat diving courses.
Digital underwater photography is one of the most popular diving specialties, which enables a diver not only get in touch with underwater life, but also bring photo memories ashore. The course contains information about modern digital equipment and photography techniques.
Deep diving is defined by the level of the diver's training, equipment, breathing gas and surface support. Giving the possibility to get in touch with inexperienced deep diving also carries more dangers than basic open water diving: for example, nitrogen narcosis can start with feelings of euphoria and over-confidence but then leads to numbness and memory impairment. One has to be especially trained for deep diving and our courses will provide excellent education of this matter.
There are several advantages to diving with a twin set including more available gas, extra supply for safety and stability underwater. The Twin Set Diver course is designed to familiarise divers with the skills, knowledge, planning, configuration, hazards and benefits of diving with twin scuba cylinders.
Longing for mystery and marvelous discoveries, we often associate diving with treasures, sank ships and extraordinary debris. Diving in debris will supply you with the feeling of adventure without putting your life in danger. Explore underwater secrets in our diving in debris courses.

Nitrox, being a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen, in which the level of oxygen is higher than in the air, enables to reduce nitrogen uptake in the body's tissues and so extend the possible dive time, and reducing the risk of decompression sickness. Learning to dive using nitrox can be the new step in your diving experience.
