These dive courses are the main body of the recreational diving curriculum. All course prices include materials and certification and all equipment used during the course itslef.
Open Water is the standard entry level course for most divers. Over the course of 4-5 days or 2 full weekends we'll cover the all basics of diving to allow you to safely dive up to 18m/60ft in depth with other certified divers.
As an existing diver take the next step and become an Advanced Diver. The Advanced course gives you the skills needed to dive deeper, navigate better and become a more 'fantastic' diver in the water. Conducted over 2-3 days the advanced course builds on the skills started in the Open Water course to make you a better diver.
The Rescue diver course teaches you the essentials of performing a diver rescue or assisting others in similar event. We'd suggest 3-4 days for the full rescue course.
Combined with first aid and CPR training this course will help you to recognise potential accidents before they happen, give you the skills to know how to react in the event of potential, actual or expected accident.
These courses are generally specific, materials and certification is included but equipment rental is generally not included for speciality course prices.
The Enriched Air diver course opens up the world of enriched air as your breathing gas of choice.
With reduced nitrogen content the use of
Enriched Air or Nitrox allows longer bottoms times and less fatigue after diving compared to the same dives using air.
This course is theory based and doesn't need any actual dives so can be fully completed here in Manila.
The 2 Day Advanced Buoyancy Diver programme is intended to turn a diver not full comfortable with their in water buoyancy, balance or positioning into a more competent diver.
As part of the course we look at the role of breathing in buoyancy, trim and positioning in the water, propulsion techniques and refinement, and of course optimisation of equipment to make you look like a pro!
Diving deep is easy to do, but it's much, much harder to do safely! The 3-day Deep Diver programme gives you the knowledge and skills to be able to dive to depths of up to 40m without needing to pay Russian Roulette with you own safety.
Wrecks offer some unique challenges in diving, from basic navigation to and from a shot line, through to limited overhead environments and entanglement hazards when using a line.
Our 4-day Wreck diver programme goes far beyond the basics and covers everything regarding wreck diving right down to basic penetration skills and fundamentals. Best combined with a Advanced Buoyancy Diver course (ask for promos) the Wreck Diving programme will open up a whole new world of, safe, wreck diving potential.
Is standard single tank diving becoming too restrictive or are you looking for a safer way of diving with extra gas reserves?
If the answer to any of the above is yes then our 4 day sidemount programme could be the answer for you. Sidemount diving offers most* of the advantages of twin-tank diving but with simplified logistics and for those with a smaller frame it can be a gret way to avoid using heavier twin-tanks.
Dry suit diving, here, in the Philippines? Well, yes - if you've never tried dry suit diving theres often a reluctance to try it without cold water in the equation; however more comfort in water, ability to use the suit for balance, ease of changing between dives and even practice for future cold water dives (without the cold water) are just some of the reasons we host this course here.
The 2 day course covers the basics of drysuit diving, maintenance and pre/post dive care of the suit.
