2009-05-19 : Advanced Open Water & Enriched Air

I've been busy with diving stuff lately: on the weekend of the 16th and 17th of May I was at Loch Long (at the twin piers) doing 5 adventure dives to gain my PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification!

The dives were (first three dives on the Saturday and the last two on the Sunday):

  1. Peek Performance Buoyancy
  2. Multi-level & Computer
  3. Digital Photography
  4. Deep (compulsory for AOW)
  5. Navigation (compulsory for AOW)

Then on the evening of the 19th of May I did the Enriched Air speciality course which was just run as a dry course, since you don't actually have to dive with enriched air to pass the course - just know its advantages, its dangers and how to analyse & plan dives with it.

What does this mean? Well I can now dive down to a depth of 30m and play with the fishies for a long time with a reduced risk of the bends :-)

Now it's time to spend lots of money on a dry suit, BCD, regulators and a cylinder :-)
