Tec 85 Trimix

Course Time: 4 days, 5 dives

Cost based on 2 people (price per person): €750

The course extends their depth range capabilities by training them in the use of trimix (helium, oxygen and nitrogen). This course lets the diver go deeper, opening up the option of using travel gases and trimix with less than 18% oxygen content. Dives during the course can be as deep as 90 metres/300 feet. Once qualified, the diver can start to explore deeper; for this reason there is no numbered suffix after the course title as in the rest of the range – there are no limits placed on how deep the diver can go after training, providing they build their experience gradually.

Prerequisites

  • Certified as a TEC TRIMIX 65 Diver or equivalent.
  • Certified as a PADI Rescue Diver or provide a qualifying certification from another training organization. (For this course, a qualifying certification is proof of training in diver rescue.

Sidemount Course

Course Time: 2-3 days, 4 dives

Cost based on 2 people (price per person): €350

Who should take this course?

Having scuba tanks on your back isn’t a requirement for exploring the underwater world. Many scuba divers have discovered the joy of mounting cylinders on their sides. Sidemount diving gives you flexibility and streamlining options. Plus, you don’t have to walk with heavy cylinders on your back – just enter the water, clip them on and go. Sound interesting? Sign up for the PADI Sidemount Diver Specialty course.

If you’re a PADI Open Water Diver who is at least 15 years old, you can enroll in a PADI Sidemount Diver course.

What will you learn?

Along with learning about the many benefits of diving with a sidemount configuration, during one confined water and three open water scuba dives you’ll learn how to:

  • Properly assemble and configure sidemount scuba diving equipment.

  • Trim your weight system and sidemount gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water.

  • Manage gas by switching second stages as planned, if wearing two cylinders.

  • Respond correctly to potential problems when sidemount diving.

Price Includes: Padi Certification fees, all tuition, tank rental.

Price Excludes: Manual/Crew pack and personal diving equipment.

Cavern Diver Course

Course Time: 2-3 days, 4 dives

Cost based on 2 people (price per person): €400

Who should take this course?

Caverns exist in many areas where scuba divers venture – from freshwater springs to volcanic island walls and limestone coasts. In these locations you’ll find large, dark spaces that seem incredibly inviting, yet are potentially dangerous. The PADI Cavern Diver Specialty course gives you the knowledge and skills to explore caverns correctly – allowing you to enter far enough for adventure, but staying within the light zone for an easy exit to open water.

You need to be PADI Advanced Open Water Diver who is at least 18 years old to enroll in the Cavern Diver course.

What will you learn?

Ready for a challenge? You’ll complete four scuba dives with the first focused on line handling, reel use and emergency procedures outside a cavern; and the next three dives put your new skills to use inside a cavern. You’ll also learn about:

  • Other specialized equipment for cavern diving, such as lights and redundant breathing systems.

  • Avoiding disorientation and anti-silting techniques.

  • Dive planning, including depth and distance limits and air management for cavern diving.

Price Includes: Padi Certification fees, all tuition, tank rental.

Price Excludes: Manual/Crew pack and personal diving equipment.
