Enriched Air Diver
Enriched Air, also known as “nitrox”, is a form of breathing gas that allows divers to extend bottom time and reduce nitrogen loading. It's our most popular specialty course. After completing your online learning (which takes a single afternoon), you'll apply the knowledge by practicing procedures for obtaining and analyzing enriched air with your instructor. You then have the option of completing two open water enriched air dives with us. This certification also counts towards the PADI Master Scuba Diver rating.

You'll also learn principles for good composition of underwater images.
Peak Performance Bouyancy
Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You've seen them underwater: gliding effortlessly, using less air, and hovering as if by thought. Divers with highly refined buoyancy more effectively observe aquatic life and keep from disturbing their surroundings. You'll learn how to determine the exact weight you need underwater, how to trim your weight system so you're perfectly balanced in the water, how to streamline to save energy, use air more efficiently, and how to hover effortlessly in any position. At B&B, we've also got a repertoire of fun activities to practice underwater (did someone say obstacle course?) so that we can really get this whole buoyancy thing down.
The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems mysterious, yet so alluring. Although you've been scuba diving at a site many times before, at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.
