At one point or another, many divers have found themselves alone during a dive, whether it was intentional or not.

SDI’s Solo Diving is the practice of self reliant scuba diving without a dive buddy.

Solo diving, once considered technical diving and discouraged by most certification agencies, is now seen by many experienced divers and some certification agencies as an acceptable practice for those divers suitably trained and experienced.

Solo Diver SDI Course

Being one of SDI’s most popular courses, the Solo Diver course stresses detailed dive planning, personal limitations, and accident prevention, as well as the benefits, hazards, and correct procedures for diving solo. You will also learn the additional equipment that is required for solo diving including its proper usage and assembly.

Rather than relying on the traditional buddy diving safety system, solo divers should be skilled in self-sufficiency and willing to take responsibility for their own safety while diving.

The Solo Diver course is the perfect training for underwater photography and underwater video divers as well as those diving with their children or buddies that may not be very experienced in scuba diving.

The SDI and PADI Rescue Diver programmes are a pivotal step in expanding your knowledge and experience. You will learn to look beyond yourself and to consider the safety and well being of other divers. You will learn how to recognize and prevent a diving accident, assess risk and how to respond if an accident happens. The course emphasises flexibility and adapting the diver to personal and environmental conditions.

Rescue Diver Course

The Rescue Diver course is designed to build an understanding of typical rescue situations and provide you with the necessary skills to execute an effective rescue without putting yourself at risk.

Rescue Divers will tell you this course is both a challenging and rewarding programme which focuses on adaptation to both personal and environmental conditions. It will make you more confident and prepared in the event of a diving emergency.

Before starting the Rescue Diver course you must have successfully completed a sanctioned course in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR – Primary Care) and basic First Aid (Secondary Care) within the past 24 months.

Many divers master their buoyancy skills the long and hard way – wasting valuable dive time, often over or incorrectly weighted and then using up more air than is required trying to control their buoyancy and trim, which limits their underwater time.

SDI-Diver-and-Dive-Computer-Photo

The SDI Advanced Buoyancy Control/PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Diver Speciality will teach you the skills and knowledge needed to progress and master your buoyancy past the level of Open Water Diver.

Good buoyancy control and trim have the advantage of improving your enjoyment and safety and extending your dive times within your dive limits by improving your air consumption. Also, what cannot be understated is the added benefit of a diver having greater control of themselves within the delicate aquatic environment, thereby preventing damage and destruction.

As the sun sets, you don your dive gear, slip on your mask and bite down on your regulator. A deep breath and you step off the boat – and into the underwater night. Although you’ve seen this reef many times before, this time you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.

SDI-Divers-Coming-Out-of-Water-at-Night

The adventure, thrill and excitement of night diving can be yours when you complete your Night Diver Specialty course with ScubaQuest.

You drop under the water on a mission to find lost sunken treasure… ok, not really. However, the Search and Recovery course can be a useful program to search for marks ‘unidentified wrecks,’ to cover ground, to seek dropped equipment or to lift that porthole that you have found, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, right?

Speaking of trash, doing area sweeps to clear rubbish from your local dive spots is ecologically helpful to our underwater world, but useless if you cannot get the trash to the surface. 

Diver-on-Wreck

Covering ground effectively is a skill, covering it quickly and effectively is an art. As a diver time is not on your side so having the skills to search ground efficiently in all visibility conditions is essential.

If what you are looking for is too heavy to lift to the surface, then correct rigging and lifting techniques will assist in the lift being successful but more importantly safe.

Divers on RIB

The Search & Recovery Diver specialty is designed to acquaint the diver with the special skills and techniques necessary to successfully plan, execute and evaluate a search and recovery dive.

To gain the Search and Recovery Diver certification students must complete two dives scheduled over one day. 

Initial theory will be undertaken online at the student’s convenience, with review and consolidation in the ScubaQuest Dive Centre located in the National Diving & Activity Centre when you attend for the course.

SDI-Diver

By the way, if you do find sunken treasure, be sure to give us a call, we would be happy to help you recover it.

It happens: People accidentally drop things from docks, off boats or even while scuba diving. If you’ve ever lost something in the water and wanted to go find it, then the SDI Search and Recovery Diver Specialty course is for you.

There are effective ways to search for objects underwater that increase your chances of success. And there are good and better methods to bring up small, large or just awkward items.

Search and recovery can be challenging, but a whole lot of fun.

Wrecks are where past and present meet and are fascinating for divers to explore.

Whether they are lost in war and steeped in history, lost in accidents or purposely sunk, the call of a wreck is nearly irresistible to divers. 

Wrecks offer amazing opportunities and rewards for divers while often having the added bonus of teeming with marine life.  However, while there are often incredible things to see on the outside of the wreck, some of the most amazing sites for divers are inside the wreck.

TDI-Divers-Exploring-Large-Wreck

While you may have undertaken the wreck adventure dive as part of your Advanced Adventure or Advanced Open Water programme and learned about the hazards and safety techniques of wreck diving, you won’t be able to penetrate the wreck.  

Through the PADI SDI Wreck Diver Specialty course you will learn and practice the skills and knowledge that are vital for safe wreck diving along with the additional skills to enable you to safely penetrate a wreck should you so wish.

Do you only dive through the summer months?

UK waters have some of the best diving, and most divers like the opportunity to dive all year round, however, the winter and spring water temperatures are often off-putting for those who dive in a wetsuit.

If you want to stay warm and toasty when diving and dive all year round then the Dry Suit diver course is perfect for you!

Diver Starfish Okay

The SDI/PADI DrySuit Speciality course is designed to help you develop the skills, knowledge and techniques necessary for safe dry suit diving.

A dry suit seals you from the water and keeps you comfortable, even in cold water.

There are some incredible dives to be experienced in the world’s cooler regions and in some areas the conditions are best in the colder months. To take advantage of these opportunities, to become a well-seasoned UK diver, and to open up other diving specialities like Ice Diving, an SDI/PADI Dry Suit Diver certification is essential.

Underwater navigation allows divers to make their way back to a special spot discovered on an earlier dive. They use the tricks and techniques of navigation to find an ideal exit point at the end of a dive without the need for an uncomfortable surface swim.

SDI-Diver-Exploring-Large-Wreck-Photo

When everyone’s buzzing about a reef or checking out a wreck, they’re having a great time – until it’s time to go and they have no idea where they are or where the boat is!

Underwater navigation can be challenging, but the Underwater Navigation Speciality course fine-tunes your observation skills and teaches you more accurate use of your compass and is designed to give students a greater understanding and experience of how to properly navigate underwater using both natural and compass navigation.

Why dive deep? Maybe it’s a wreck that attracts you that’s just below 30 metres, or a giant fan or a sponge on a wall reef.  Whatever the reason, to scuba dive safely, with confidence at depths down to 40 metres you require additional knowledge and skills that are provided in the SDI and PADI Deep Diver Speciality programme.

SDI-Diver-Exploring-Ocean-Photo

Successful completion of the SDI or PADI Deep Diver Speciality will allow you to dive to a maximum depth of 40 meters, the maximum depth for Recreational Divers.

As you’ll be venturing deeper into the underwater world, there are inherent risks and a few more considerations. In the Deep Diver course you will learn how to minimise these risks and dive safely to new depths.

The initial theory will be undertaken online at the student’s convenience, with review and consolidation in the ScubaQuest Dive Centre in The National Diving & Activity Centre when you attend the Deep Diver course.

Diving with enriched air nitrox (EANx) is one of the most popular SDI & PADI specialities. The principle behind this programme is that it enables you to safely extend your no-stop time beyond the no-decompression limits for air at a given depth. Enriched air used conservatively can also reduce the risk of decompression sickness.

Diver-Points-Flashlight-with-Wreck-Behind-Him

So, diving with enriched air means more time underwater, that must be a good thing, right?

And you are right, it is!

However, the additional considerations of adding extra oxygen to your breathing gas require you to be certified as an Enriched Air Diver to get enriched air fills, safely analyse the gas, properly plan and prepare for diving and then dive within the gas and your limits all of which are covered on the course.

TDI Technical Scuba Diving Courses from ScubaQuest

Whether you are into underwater photography or wreck diving, on vacation in some tropical paradise, on a liveaboard trip with 4-5 dives a day or just out for a leisurely day of diving at your local dive site, the Nitrox/Enriched Air Diver course helps you get more out of your diving by giving you more time underwater and as we have already established, that is a good thing!

Certification

We are providing this certification through either Scuba Diving International (SDI) or PADI. Both agency certifications are equally valid and recognised worldwide. Please enquire at the centre if you require your training to be through a specific agency.
