PADI Dry Suit Diver Speciality  £189

Take your diving further

The PADI Dry Suit Specialty is a great course as it allows you to dive in slightly colder waters found in the UK and several other places around the world. A dry suit seals you off from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in surprisingly cold water. There is incredible diving in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas, conditions are even better in colder months. Becoming a dry suit diver allows you to expand your boundaries and dive more places, more often.

In order to become a dry suit diver you must complete the the on-line learning and then complete two open water dives at Wraysbury Dive Centre.

PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Speciality  £150

One of the biggest problems divers run into is that the wanted to stay underwater longer. The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course allows you to do just that! This is because Enriched Air, more commonly known as Nitrox, increases the amount of oxygen in the scuba cylinder, so you absorb less nitrogen, which in turn allows you to stay underwater for longer. Nitrox also makes you feel more energetic after a dive!

To qualify as an Enriched Air Nitrox Diver you must be at least 12 years old and have your PADI Open Water Certification or equivalent. The theory is done online, and then you will simply meet up with us where we show you how to analyse your cylinder and log it, and if you have your own computer we can help show you how to set it to the O2 mix.
