An exciting alternative to a standard scuba regulator is a Full Face Mask! (FFM) Using an FFM is easy, a lot of fun and offers some great advantages to a standard Scuba regulator, such as keeping your entire face warm during those cold winter and quarry dives, no jaw fatigue or water against your face, hard to knock a mask off, great field of vision and you can add a communications unit so that you can talk to each other

During the PADI Full Face Mask Diver course you will learn how to use a full face mask, the advantages of using a full face mask, and the emergency procedures to switch to your backup regulator and regular mask. You will also explore the underwater communications systems that can be used with a full face mask.

The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.

DPVs offer a thrilling way for scuba divers to see a lot of underwater territory in a short amount of time. They scoot you through the water allowing you to glide over reefs, buzz around a large wreck or weave through a kelp forest. Whether making a shore or boat dive, a DPV is a great way to see more and have fun doing it.  Pick up your Diver Propulsion Vehicle Manual and Diver Propulsion Vehicle video and start learning. By studying independently, you’re better prepared to get in the water with your instructor and start “scootering.”

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course guides you in choosing the right DPV for you. You’ll make two dives and learn about:

  • Maintaining your DPV.
  • How to plan dives, including procedures for staying with your buddy.
  • DPV-handling skills, such as making proper descents and ascents.
  • Potential problems and ways to deal with them.

Get credit! The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
