Decompression Diving Course


Exploration, Emotion, Experiences

The SSI Decompression Diving course teaches you to dive below your no decompression limits. We will teach you to plan and conduct dives up to 40 meters doing decompression, but using your own recreational diving equipment as well as a decompression stage cylinder. We will also teach you how to get more out of your dive computer by using the gas change functions and also taking into account parameters such as “time to reserve” or “time to surface”… all this to help you conduct your own dives with decompression in a safe way
