PADI Adventure & Nitrox Course

IMG_1330

Combine and complete both the PADI Adventure and Enriched Air Nitrox Course in just two days ! Most divers complete the advanced course just to get certified to dive to 30 metres, this package gives you the benefit of the deep certification with the added Nitrox certification – allowing you to dive deep and stay for longer.

The added bonus is you get 4 dives on the Yongala (most divers comment if they knew the diving was this good they would have planned 4 dives over 2 days instead). If you wish to study using the manual you will need to arrive at least a day prior to complete the theory or why not use PADI eLearning and study online in the comfort of your own home, leaving just the training dives to complete with us.

Prerequisites:

  • Minimum age 15
  • Open Water Dive Certification
  • Completion of  Continuing Education Student Diver Medical Declaration
  • Self-study prior to arrival

*You may be required to consult a medical practitioner depending on your response. (Any costs associated in this process are payable direct to the doctor).

Upgrade the package to the full PADI Advanced certification

Upgrade to the full PADI Advanced Open Water Course, just one more day and you get another two dives on the SS Yongala dive site. Day 3 will include:

  • Dive 5 – PADI Navigation Adventure Dive
  • Dive 6 – PADI Adventure Dive (select from elective dives)

Example of benefit of using nitrox when diving the SS Yongala

Day 1 – Dives on air (21%) to 22 metres, plan – 36 minutes time for both dives

  • Dive 1 – 36 min dive, 1 hour interval (max. bottom time = 37 mins)
  • Dive 2 – maximum allowable bottom time = only 21 mins !

Day 2 – Dives on nitrox (36%) to 22 metres, plan – 36 minutes time for both dives

  • Dive 1 – 36 min dive with 1 hour interval (max. bottom time = 70 mins)
  • Dive 2 – maximum allowable bottom time = a massive 54 mins !

The Nitrox dives are much safer as you don’t come close to your maximum bottom time and don’t load your body with nitrogen meaning an extra 30 minutes more dive time on dive 2. You could easily complete both dives with 40-45 min bottom times.

Note: These examples were planned using dive tables, results would be similar using dive computers
