If you are a PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent qualification) you can complete your PADI Advanced Course while on board Spirit of Freedom. This course is comprised of 5 areas of skill in scuba diving and is designed to introduce you to different types of diving and dive conditions, increasing your skill, knowledge and comfort level.

The 5 components will be selected from the areas of Navigation, Night Diving, Deep Diving, Naturalist (fish & animal identification), Peak Performance Buoyancy, Underwater Digital Photography and Drift Diving.

The course requires you to complete both a theory component and 5 practical dives. The theory is conducted using self-study requiring completion of a written Knowledge Review and discussion with your Dive Instructor. If you'd rather not use your time on board studying, you can complete your theory prior to your dive trip by taking the PADI E-Learning option or by purchasing an Adventures in Diving manual from your local PADI dive centre and completing the relevant knowledge reviews. It is a requirement that you bring your completed knowledge reviews with you. If you are bringing your own manual or have completed the PADI E-Learning the rate for the Advanced Course will be adjusted to $235.

PADI Enriched Air Diver Course (Nitrox Diving)

Padi Enriched Air Diver Course

This course is designed to introduce any diver who has a minimum of 20 dives to diving on Nitrox or Enriched Air. The air we breath normally is comprised of approximately 21% Oxygen and 79% Nitrogen. ‘Nitrox’ is simply a gas blend with a higher percentage of Oxygen, and consequently a decreased Nitrogen content. The Nitrox onboard Spirit of Freedom is comprised of approximately 32% Oxygen and 68% Nitrogen made using a Membrane Filter system. By reducing the Nitrogen content in the gas we breathe we may be able to decrease nitrogen loading and extend No Decompression Limits in some depth ranges.

The course has both a theory component and a practical dive component.

The theory is conducted using self-study requiring completion of a written Knowledge Review following a video presentation and use of the Nitrox Manual. You Dive Instructor will also be available for discussion and to assist with any questions you may require help with.
