You’ll plan your learning path with your instructor by choosing from a long list of Adventure Dives once you arrive on Komodo. There are two required dives – Deep and Underwater Navigation – and you choose the other three, for a total of five dives.
During the Deep Adventure Dive, you learn how to plan dives to deal with the physiological effects and challenges of deeper scuba diving.
The Underwater Navigation Adventure Dive refines your compass navigation skills and helps you better navigate using kick-cycles, visual landmarks, time and orientation.
In the optional Nitrox Course, you will learn why scuba diving with air containing lower level of nitrogen and a higher oxygen content allows you to have more bottom time.
Furthermore you will become familiar with enriched air equipment considerations.
During a practical session and two optional sea dives, you’ll practice:
- Managing oxygen exposure.
- Analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
- Setting your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox
