Do your plans this year take you to destinations that you would be diving multiple dives a day for several days? Would you like to extend your bottom time underwater to explore longer? Scuba Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no-decompression time, especially on repetitive on scuba dives. If you are not certified in Nitrox consider it today. We offer several trips that you can use Nitrox, and our Bonaire and Fiji trip includes FREE Nitrox. The course is taught with a computer, so bring your computer and know how it functions and how to navigate thru the screens and change settings. If you need to rent a computer for the evening we have one to rent for $10. The benefit of diving with a computer and nitrox is longer bottom time, so if you don't own one, you might consider purchasing one. We have several models to choose from. Receive a discount on a new dive computer after taking this course to upgrade your current model or get you into your first dive computer. This is a classroom course and knowledge reveiews are done ahead of time. Come in to sign up for this FUN course and DIVE LONGER! Space is limited!

We are planning ANOTHER trip to Newport to dive the Aquarium on April 20, 2019! Cost to dive aquarium is $249. This includes a 2 tank dive where you dive the Halibut Flats section and feed the sturgeon, and one dive in the sharks and rays tank. This also includes a guide for the dives, a behind the scenes pre-dive tour of the marine life, and an aquarium day pass. Steel Tanks are included also. This is a great COAST dive with unlimited visibility, easy entry and can wave at the spectators! We have a block of rooms reserved for one or two nights at a discounted diver rate. Make a weekend out of it and dive one day and explore one day. When we did this dive in January it was spectacular! Tons to see and lots of great marine life. Feeding the sturgeons was fun and not your basic cold water dive destination. Make a weekend out of this. 

Space is limited so contact us to sign up asap. We can have 12 divers, so space is limited. Don't need to bring tanks but NEED to bring weights along with your dive gear!
