PADI Oxygen Provider


Pure oxygen is the first aid in most diving-related accidents. Providing oxygen needs training and that is why you need to be certified to give oxygen to others. We recommend completing Oxygen Provider course together with the EFR course.

PADI Enriched Air Nitrox


After Nitrox course you are certified to dive with enriched air with up to 40% oxygen. On top of the academics we learn to analyse breathing gases. Nitrox gives you more bottom time and also increases general safety on dives as less nitrogen is absorbed in your body.

Nitrox course's duration is generally one academic lesson/evening.

PADI Rescue Diver


This is one of the most demanding (but also rewarding) of our recreational dive courses. You will learn through genuine rescue simulations how to act in stressful environments or underwater emergencies. Recue Diver course is also mandatory if you plan to become a professional Divemaster.

Rescue Diver course consists of an academic lesson, pool training and three open water dives.

PADI Deep Diver


Want to go deeper? The deeper we dive, the more nitrogen narcosis affects us. On Deep Diver course you have a chance to dive deeper safely under your instructor's supervision and learn to take even better care of your NDL's. After this course you are certified to dive to 40 meters.

This course consists of an academic lesson and three open water dives.

PADI Dry Suit Specialty


When diving in Finland and other cold water countries, using a drysuit is mandatory. And even in warm water it is convenient to stay dry during the dive. However drysuit is also a buoyancy compensator, so you need assistance to learn to use it safely. On this course we look at different suit types, their maintenance and use in theory and practice.

After completing the academics and pool session we do two open water dives in local divesites in Tampere.

PADI Night Diver


On many divesites the underwater world is completely different at day and night. The surrounding darkness and your own divelight bring a new aspect to diving. In Finland the visibility is mostly challenging, so the night diver course is useful here even during the day. On this course we focus on night diving safety rules and underwater communicating in dark.

The course consists of an academic lesson and two open water dives.

PADI Wreck Diver


Divesites around the world are full of wonderful and historic ship wrecks. Wreck diving course is one of the most popular PADI Specialties worldwide.

This course can be arranged for example in Hanko. It consists of an academic lesson and 2 open water dives.

PADI Ice Diver


In Finland winter is very long, but you don't need to let it stop you from diving! On ice diving course we learn to make a hole in the ice and dive safely under the ice.

The course consists of an adacemic lesson and 4 ice dives that are normally organized in a weekend. The courses are scheduled depending on the weather conditions.

PADI Sidemount Diver


Do you want a streamlined gear setup with two independent air delivery systems? An alternative option for twin sets is sidemount, where the cylinders are mounted on the diver's sides. On this course we focus on setting up sidemount gear and learn to dive with it in pool and open water.

PADI Digital Underwater Photographer


Capturing the wonderful underwater world in photos is the best way to make memories on your dive trips. But taking great photos while hovering can be tricky. On this course you will learn to master the essential techniques of underwater photography! We will also go through different camera settings. We recommend you bring your own camera to the course.
