Scuba Diving Course Toronto

 

Boat Diver

Much of the world's best scuba diving is accessible only by boat. Whether you've never made a boat dive or you've logged dozens, the PADI Boat Diver Specialty course will benefit you because boats in various parts of the world do things differently. Scuba diving from a boat is fun and relatively easy because you usually descend directly onto your dive site.

What will you learn?

The PADI Boat Diver course will expand your knowledge about boats from small inflatables to large liveaboards. You'll gain experience scuba diving by completing two dives from a boat in your local area and learn:
  • Boat terminology.
  • Boat diving procedures and etiquette, including how to enter and exit, and where to stow your gear.
  • Boating safety, including how to locate safety equipment.
  • What's your next step?

    If you're interested in taking this course please contact us at info@watersportsscuba.com or 416-488-1000.

    ⇤ BACK TO TOPENRICHED AIR DIVER (NITROX) ⇥

    DRIFT DIVER COURSE TORONTO

     

    Enriched Air Diver (Nitrox)

    The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is our most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air (nitrox) gives you more no-decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. So, if staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don't hesitate to become an enriched air diver!

    What will you learn?

    You'll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During the class review you'll:
  • Learn how to manage your oxygen exposure.
  • Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
  • Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.
  • What's your next step?

    Our nitrox course is $199.00 and includes your PADI Enriched Air Diver manual, the class review, and your PADI certification card. This course is available to certified Open Water Divers who are at least 12 years old.

    ⇤ BACK TO TOPPEAK PERFORMANCE BUOYANCY ⇥

    EQUIPMENT SPECIALIST COURSE TORONTO

     

    Peak Performance Buoyancy

    Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You've seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.

    What will you learn?

    During two scuba dives, you'll learn how to:
  • Determine the exact weight you need, so you're not too light or too heavy.
  • Trim your weight system and scuba gear so you're perfectly balanced in the water.
  • Streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently and move more smoothly through the water.
  • Hover effortlessly in any position - vertical or horizontal.
  • What's your next step?
