Have you ever wanted to experience the underwater world? Trying diving for the first time has never been easier! No previous experience required, no tests, no stress! Just easy, safe, and fun! Discover with us the excitement and adventure of diving, and let us guide you through the crystal clear water of the Adriatic sea!
If you want to dive and breathe under the sea, our instructor will take you for a test dive (discovery), where you will get an entirely new experience.
If you want to become a diver, you can take the elementary course in autonomous diving – Open Water Diver (OWD).
A Certified Open Water Diver is allowed to dive up to 21 m. If you are interested in seeing more amazing wrecks on deeper locations on the Island of Vis, it is necessary to pass the Advanced Open Water Diver (AOWD) programme.
AOWD – Advanced Open Water Diver
The Programme is designed to enable Open Water Divers to extend their proficiency in the water and to gain more supervised practical experience. A Certified Open Water Diver is allowed to dive up to 30 m.
If you should want to go even deeper, we offer trimix courses in which special gases are used, enabling you to dive safely at even greater depths.
One of the gaseous, breathable mixtures used for technical diving over 40 meters of depth is called TRIMIX. The name says it is a triple mixture (of oxygen, nitrogen and helium gases) The preparation of proportions of gases is made for every depth and it is determined by a mix that represents the BEST MIX for that depth, i.e. on optimal volumetric amount of these three gases for that particular depth. Labels on the TRIMIX bottles are for example, TX 16/40, where the first number indicates the percentage of oxygen in the mixture, while the second number indicates the percentage of helium gas. TRIMIX mixtures are optimal for the deep dives, over the 40 meters of depth, because in the mixture is added inert gas helium to replace the calculated amount of oxygen and nitrogen that we must not breathe if they were present in percentage as in the air, at greater depths due to their toxicity. Oxygen becomes toxic at a partial pressure of 1,6 bar, and the nitrogen gas causes nitrogen narcosis (‘rapture of the deep’) at a partial pressure of 3,5 bar and also at higher numbers.
Given the fact that the amount of oxygen in mixture has been reduced, we must not breath some of the TRIMIX mixtures at the surface, because of the too small partial pressure of oxygen among the gases, and so we must use, the so called ‘travel mix’ mixture that we breathe at the beginning of the dive, at the surface and when returning from the depths.
With these procedures we use specific mixtures when diving at different depths and their composition differ between different schools of thoughts, and therefore each school has its own standards. For example, three standard Trimix mixtures are used in the range of 40 to 60 meters, the other at 60 – 80 meters, and the third one is used on the depth of 80 – 100 meters. If you wish to attend Trimix preparation course, you can do it with us.
You’re welcome guest and we will be happy to see you!
TDI Courses (Technical Diving International Courses)
Technical diving International (TDI) is the largest agency for technical diving certification in the world, and the first to offer courses for gas mixtures and rebreathers. Technical diving international (TDI) specializes in advanced diving techniques, especially diving with rebreathers and use a mixture of gases such as trimix and heliox.
TDI was founded in 1994 by Bret Gilliam, John COMLY, John Crea, David Sipperly and Mitch Skaggs after separation from IANTD in 1993. The agency’s aim is to provide materials for education and training for specialized diving situation. Some courses offered by TDI include diving with Nitrox and Trimix mixtures, as well as rebreathers. They also provide training for closed environments such as caves and wrecks and are the first organization to offer a complete course for instructors of technical diving.
