Crystal River & Updates

Crystal River & Updates

Hello Divers,

Mark and Forrest have just returned from our Crystal River, FL trip.  The weather was beautiful, probably too beautiful.  

When it is warm outside the Manatee disperse quickly.  We spent most of our time out of the water in t-shirts and shorts.  The group was able to spend a lot of time in the water on SCUBA in King Spring in Crystal River and we even did a two hour drift dive down the Rainbow River.  
It was very comfortable in and out of the water and on Sunday we were able to swim with this Manatee.

Continuing Education
March 5th, 9:30 am at The SCUBA School, Enriched Air NITROX
Have you ever dreamed of having longer no-decompression limits to take pictures or explore a wreck? Did you ever want to be safer while diving concerning the potential risk of decompression sickness?

Nitrox is the key. Due to the reduced fraction of nitrogen in your breathing gas, your body will have less work and the de saturation times will be reduced.

In your ENRICHED AIR NITROX program you will learn all the necessary rules for planning dives with Nitrox and using Nitrox in a safe way. An important key point in the entire program is analyzing your own tank prior to any Nitrox dive.

April 23 and May 1st, Stress and Rescue Course
Stress is a major contributor to rescue situations and diving accidents. Through this course you will learn accident prevention, as well as how to handle problem situations if they occur.

The program is about avoiding, recognizing and solving problems on the surface and under water. The course runs two – four days in which you will participate in academic and in-water sessions in the pool and in the open water. As a prerequisite for certification you will also earn CPR & First Aid certificate during this course.
