Frequently Asked Questions


Is there one agency that is better than others? 

Every dive training agency would like to have you believe that they are " the best ". They would

love for you to wear t-shirts with their name on it advertising their "brand" of training. The truth is

other than some terminology and a few semantics, most dive training agencies are very similar

and all of the major training agencies are governed by one set of standards that dictate the

basic curriculum and general skills that must be completed in order to earn a certification. You

just want to dive! Let the professionals at Adventure Diving explain the three step certification

process for you.

Why should I use NITROX? 

NITROX diving gas reduces the amount of Nitrogen that is absorbed in your body over the

duration of a dive. If used properly, it can significantly reduce the possibility of some gas

related injuries while diving. Most divers that use NITROX regularly also report staying warmer

and are generally less fatigued after multiple dives. We could write a small book here on the

benefits and perceptions of diving NITROX. If you have any interest or questions about NITROX

diving please ask one of our instructors .

Can I take specialty and advanced courses if my open water certification isn't SDI? 

Yes. Divers can take SDI specialty courses even if your Open Water Certification is

with another dive training agency. Almost all courses transfer straight across certification
