For the second course that you will do in a combined way and depending on the option you choose, you will be able to
1) Learn more about underwater ecology, and about aquatic animal and plant habitats, all specific to the Montgrí Natural Park and the Medes Islands. Observing, through responsible interactions, aquatic life.
2) Learn why to dive with nitrox, as it has more oxygen content and less nitrogen it gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. You will practice analyzing the oxygen content of your scuba tank and setting your dive computer to dive with enriched air nitrox.
3) Learn why it is important to follow a course to dive up to 40 meters deep, with techniques such as descents, seeing how pressure affects different objects, compass navigation, ascents, safety stops and emergency decompression.
