There are many questions that come up for divers after the certification program. How do dive computers change when diving at altitude? How does a digital gauge measure depth as I descend? Why does my buoyancy feel so different at 60 feet than at 30 feet? Why doesn’t my tank change pressure as I descend if pressure is increasing? How do 2 different sized tanks both hold 3000 psi of air? How does nitrogen on gas rates really change with depth and do deeper dives really make me more likely to get “bent”? These are all legitimate questions to have as certified divers. The Diving Physics Workshop explains these issues and also covers more practical aspects of diving. Feel free to bring any other questions you may have to class. We know now that this statement is about as far from true as you can get. The ocean is, in fact, one of the most fragile resources we have. Understanding the underwater environment teaches us how to interact with the very thing we dive to see. Proper diving technique and conservation practices are how divers can do their part to protect the future of the oceans. Learn about the cause and effect of ocean waves, wind, tides, ecology, species, and conservation. All the while learning how it can effect divers entries, exits, and time in the water.
The Physics course costs $95 and is typically done on a Saturday afternoon.
Once you have paid you can sign up either in person, over the phone or via email. Just remember to check the schedule tab to make sure you can attend an upcoming class before signing up!
