Specialty Diving Courses
Are you interested in specific diving activities, for example wreck diving or deep diving? Then a specialty course is something for you. Together with your instructor you make fun dives and you'll learn a lot and receive specific information on this diving activity. Fun and educational.
Phuket dash Scuba dot Com can offer you a lot of specialties. For some you need to make two dives, for others three. And: the dives you have already made for your Advanced Open Water Course can be credited towards the specialty course, or if you did not do the advanced course yet the other way around of course. On top of that we can combine dives, so e.g. we can combine a deep and a wreck dive into one dive at the King Cruiser wreck.
Enriched Air - Nitrox
The most populair specialty course is the enriched air or Nitrox Course.
Diving with enriched air means more time underwater and most divers feel better, less tired, after diving with Nitrox – but you need to be certified as an Enriched Air Diver to get enriched air fills.
Whether you’re into underwater photography or wreck diving, on vacation in some tropical paradise or just out for a leisurely day of diving at your local dive site, the Enriched Air Diver course helps you get more out of diving by giving you more time underwater.
During the course you will learn how to analyse cylinder contents, plan enriched air dives using tables or dive computers and safely increase your no stop time.
This is a somewhat different course than most specialties, since it requires a bit more theory. This course has the additional advantage that it can be easily combined with other courses, even the Open Water Course, but normally with the Advanced Course or with specialty courses like deep and wreck.
Including certification, manual, two dives and online diveplanner 8,750 Baht. In combination with another course the Nitrox course costs 5,500 Baht. This is also the price for the Nitrox course without the optional dives but including certification.
This course can start every day of the week.
You can already start your Nitrox (enriched air) course from back home! For more information about this contact us or follow this link.
