PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course Midweek
Join us as we kick it old-school with a more informative and fun live midweek PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course Tuesday and Thursday Evenings 6:00-10pm at DDS with Cave & Technical Diving Explorer Matt Mandziuk
What will you learn?
Enriched Air Nitrox is the most interesting academic diving course with a greater understanding of what’s happening to your body: decompression theory, gas laws, physiology, dive planning, managing oxygen exposure and so much more.
Nitrox is a great course for divers who want to learn more about dive science and benefit from a more efficient breathing medium that allows more bottom time, allowing divers to see more, dive more and do more dives per day with shorter surface intervals.
Minimum age is 12 years, however, we feel 15 years of age is more suited to the scope of the academics, unless doing a simplified computer based nitrox course.
Take this course as part of your Open Water course or your Advanced Open Water Course.
Nitrox is the most popular dive specialty available now on the market. Divers looking to advanced their diving to a more skill and theory oriented style of diving can use Nitrox as a stepping stone towards deeper, more advanced, technical, cave diving applications, as well as rebreather diving.
Diving Nitrox Allows Divers to:
- Do more dives per day
- Reduce Nitrogen Uptake by reducing the risk of Decompression Illness. By giving your body much needed oxygen to supply tissue/oxygen demands if diving nitrox as air, you on-gass less N2 and increase safety reducing the risk of DCS by up to 46%.
- More Bottom Time increasing NO Stop dive limits. * For Example Diving an EAN40 (40% Oxygen/60% Nitrogen) gives a diver 240 min’s of No Decompression time at 60fsw vs. 60ft for 55min’s on regular air diving tables.
- Reduce Post Dive Fatigue. No more feeling burned out after air dives. Nitrox will make you feel better and more awake after dives.
At Dan’s we teach the Highest Quality Nitrox Course around. No one has as much experience in the field of mixed gas and technical diving than Dan’s, so learn from the best.
Our facility has been the top nitrox and technical dive training facility since the 1990’s. If you want the most thorough Nitrox training course, ours is the one you’ll want.

PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specialty Course
The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specialty Course is one of the most fun ways to spend time breathing underwater is to do so exploring with a DPV.
Diving with a DPV is simply more fun, fast and makes any dive more exciting! Cover more distance on a dive and use less air while smiling ear to ear when you dive with an underwater scooter.
Learn about the different types and features of DPV’s, maintenance, transportation, dive planning and safety, DPV diving procedures, as well as basic techniques of using a DPV, problems, hazards and more as you complete 2 open water dives with a SUEX or Halcyon Advanced Dive Vehicle (ADV) or Diver Propulsion Vehicles.
This course is available privately for individuals or groups locally or wherever you are located.
Certified Junior Open Water Diver and higher
Our PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specialty Course (DPV) is a lot of fun!
DPVs offer a thrilling way to see a lot of underwater territory in a brief amount of time. They propel you through the water without kicking. Whether making a shore dive or diving from a boat, a DPV is a great way to see more and have a blast doing it.
One of the most fun ways to spend time breathing underwater is to do it on an underwater scooter. Diver Propulsion Vehicle’s are fun, fast and makes any dive more exciting!
Learn about the different types and features of DPV’s, maintenance, transportation, dive planning and safety, DPV diving procedures, as well as basic techniques of using a DPV, problems, hazards and more as you complete 2 open water dives with one of our SUEX Xjoy 7, XjVR, XJS or SUEX XK Diver Propulsion Vehicles.
We use only the highest quality diver propulsion vehicles, as the cheaper lower quality units are always leaking, breaking down or just don’t give you the ride you deserve. For this reason we have chosen SUEX ADV’s as our choice for quality and reliable diver propulsion vehicles.
Ride in style with us and learn the right way to dive and the right way to scooter around your favourite dive sites.
Using a DPV can benefit you when diving large bodies of water like Sherkston Quarry, or takes you off shore wrecks like the Kinghorn in Rockport, or the Raleigh off of Sherkston Beach, as well as large wrecks like the Empress of Ireland or the Roy A. Jodrey. Diver Propulsion vehicles are a tool to take you somewhere cool, be it quarries, wrecks, reefs or caves, a DPV is a lot of fun and you won’t want to leave home without one, so rent or buy yours from us today.
Diver Propulsion Vehicles also cut back your air consumption giving you more bottom time to explore (within NDL).
Minimum age 12yrs old.
Course Cost is $225 +HST includes PADI DPV Manual, certification fee.
Course cost does not include charter fees or park admission fees.
Course will run 6pm-9pm each night for 3 weeknights Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Evening or can be conducted over a full day of class/dry land and surface drills, followed by the open water dives. Group or Semi-private or Private courses are available.
