PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course

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. On Spirit of Freedom the dives as part of the Advanced course may depend on weather, location and your interests. The theory component 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, complete your theory prior to your 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. You must bring your completed knowledge reviews with you. The practical Dive application will consist of a Pre Dive Briefing, a dive on which you will conduct underwater tasks and a Post Dive Briefing.

Cost$265 per person to 30 June 2019, Includes PADI PIC, Manual.

PADI Enriched Air Diver Course (Nitrox Diving)

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. Your Dive Instructor will also be available for discussion and to assist with any questions you may require help with. The practical dive application will consist of a Pre-Dive Briefing, 2 dives planning, analyzing and diving with Nitrox, and a Post-Dive Briefing.

Cost$295 per person to 30 June 2018
Cost$325 per person from 01 July 2018


Includes PADI PIC, Manual, and all dives on Nitrox for the remainder of your trip.
