First Aid / CPR / O2 Administration -

   First Aid is the immediate response given an injured or suddenly ill person. Signs and symptoms are review for several different conditions, with discussion giving guidelines towards when to visit an immediate care is called for, or if a call to 911 is more appropriate.  These classes train you in the temporary assistance that is given to support the person until professional assistance, if required, arrives and takes over.  Properly applied first aid can save lives, reduce recovery time, and quite possibly be the difference between temporary or permanent disability for the person.  All SCUBA Instructors are required to be trained in First Aid, CPR and O2 administration for the safety of our students.  Yet, we strongly believe that this is a class for the whole family; one never knows who will be the person at the scene of an incident, therefore everybody should have this training!

First Aid & CPR only – $125.00

DriftDiverSpecialty

The PADI Drift Diver Specialty course introduces you to the coolest magic carpet ride you’ll ever experience. This course shows you how to enjoy rivers and ocean currents by “going with the flow,” staying with your dive partner, communicating with the dive boat and knowing where you are the whole time. Drift Diving is nearly effortless and relaxing. You simply glide along and enjoy the rush of flying underwater while the current does the work.
