More bottom time. This is every diver's dream. When using enriched air instead of standard air, that is what you get...more bottom time. For example, when diving to 15 meters/50 feet on air, the no-decompression limit is 80 minutes. When diving on EANx36, however, the no-decompression limit is almost tripled to 220 minutes.

These kinds of increases are applicable to depths of 130 feet. Diving Enriched Air (aka nitrox) is offered by most resorts and liveaboards. Equipment manufacturers have developed and introduced equipment centered on the benefits of nitrox.

This course also provides students with a deeper understanding of the effects of pressure, building on the material learned in Open Water certification.

The Enriched Air Diver Specialty course counts toward the Master Scuba Diver certification and is the most requested PADI specialty course available.

Scuba Tune-Up classes are conducted every first Saturday of each month. Call to schedule your class, today or send us an e-mail.


Are you a certified diver who hasn’t been able to get in the water enough —too much work, not enough play?

Join us on the first Saturday of each month (excludes December) for $10 Bubbles and a Beer. For $10, any certified diver can join us in the pool. Tank is included. Don’t have your own gear yet? For another $10 you will get an entire scuba kit to use.

Cylinder and weights are included with first $10.

Right after the event, we will head to one of the local watering holes/restaurants to grab a beer, some food & hang out. The restaurant will be a family-friendly establishment, welcoming those who can drink beer, as well as those who can only drink root beer. For those who want to drink beer, proper ID and legal age are required.

Come as often as you like; we would love to see you. Blowing bubbles is always a great time, even if it’s just in the pool. Please call to sign up so we know how many are coming.
