With the Deep Adventure Dive, you’ll learn to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and the challenges that arise from deeper scuba diving. The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive will enhance your navigation skills using a compass. This will help you to navigate better by using techniques such as kick-cycles, visual landmarks and time.
- Aside from your usual basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a compass and dive knife or dive tool. Depending on which specialty you choose, some additional equipment may be required.
- All equipment is available to hire for free. Some equipment, for example underwater cameras, will incur an extra charge unless it is required as part of your specialty.
- You’re welcome to use your own equipment but most importantly, please make sure it’s been serviced as and when required. If we see equipment that we do not feel is safe or adequate, we reserve the right to ask you to leave it behind and provide you with a suitable replacement.
- We have a huge range of scuba diving and snorkeling products to buy online. These can either be delivered to you or you can pick them up from here when you arrive.
- If you have specialist requirements, please contact us and we will do all we can to help fulfil those requirements.
