Deep Diver

Sometimes some divers say: Why should I do the Deep Diver Course if I’ve already been at 40 meters deep dives? A very common error is diving at that depth with the basic knowledge learnt at the Advanced course. And it’s not the same going down 40 meters deep than staying at that depth doing a longer and more controlled immersion, with the needed safety and knowledge.

After the Advanced certification, this is the ideal specialty to be able to dive up to 40 meters deep with safety and a good planning. We will do 3 immersions from 30 meters (98,4 feet) to 40 meters (131,3 feet) checking the planning with you in areas where you’ve never dived before.


GENERAL OVERVIEW: Deep diving lets you access specific immersions and observe places you never would have imagined. At these depths you will observe the marvelous gorgonians and corals at the “Bajo de Dentro” and all that area that you’ve never visited before. As well as a good immersion at the “NADIR” shipwreck using up all our bottom time at 40 meters. Or see all the shipwrecks at the “Bajo de Fuera”, like the “Sirio”. You will be able to come with us to visit more remote shipwrecks like the “Carbonero” In a nutshell: you will access the deep immersions catalog that is meant only for DEEP divers.

THEORY: To do the theory part of the course we will give you the PADI Deep Diver manual and after reading it you will complete an easy knowledge review at the end of it. In class we will correct each knowledge review clarifying each doubt you might have. There is no exam in this course.

EXERCISE PART: During the 3 immersions, among other things, we will cover: planning and safety management in a deep dive, different narcosis tests, descents and ascents without a rope, deep stops, specific signals of the dive computer and lighting, multilevel dive management, use of an extra air tank (stage tank) and a selection of specific exercises and practices of deep diving.

ORGANIZATION: You won’t have to adjust to a specific course calendar, we organize each immersion based on your schedule needs., though we usually start at 9 A.M. to have time to make an immersion and finish before lunchtime. We spend around half an hour reviewing theory before each course immersion, as well as explaining the exercises we will practice in each immersion.

SIGNING UP: You only have to send us an email to receive the enrollment confirmation. Then you fill it in and pay approximately 20% of the total cost of the course. We will then send you the material to start reading. We organize sea immersions and you only have to worry about ENJOYING AND LEARNING! You are becoming a diver with experience in deep dives.

Wreck Diver

Learn to get to know a shipwreck

Many divers talk about shipwrecks as if it was just scrap metal, missing what really implies diving into the planet’s submerged history. Many shipwrecks have a great story behind them (Sirio, Thistlegorm, Rosalie, Moller…) and others not so great but hidden in time (NADIR, “The sinking of “El Naranjito”, Numidia, Thordisa…) but the most beautiful thing is to rediscover and see all those little details that go unnoticed by many. This is what we want to teach you: to enjoy to the maximum a shipwreck from all possible angles, using the shipwrecks we have at Cabo de Palos as training. The menu is served; if you want to start to get to know the underwater history, step into this PADI specialty course.

The goal is for you to learn to make decisions with safety and develop the correct techniques in a specific shipwreck immersion. Another of the great appeals of this course is studying and getting to know the history of some shipwrecks in our area and diving among all their secrets. You will also learn to throw a diving reel and follow it correctly.


GENERAL OVERVIEW: At Cabo de Palos you have the great luck of being able to dive at the NADIR, a shipwreck open to an advanced diver, very close to the shore and impressively big and well preserved. In 2008 Balkysub carried out a deep investigation about this vessel, that helped discover the true date of the sinking and all the details of this unique and close shipwreck. This motivated us to film a documentary to immortalize the history of this sunken giant. Which is why we are real experts on this shipwreck that touched the seabed at Cabo de Palos on TUESDAY THE 13TH OF APRIL OF 1943.

 

THEORY: To do the theory we will give you the PADI Wreck Diver manual specially dedicated to the NADIR, and after reading it you will complete the easy knowledge review featured on the last pages. In our class we will correct each of your reviews clarifying every doubt you may have. This course has no exam.

EXERCISE PART: During the 4 immersions included in the course you will practice: planning and management of security in a shipwreck,, navigation course mapping and orientation, localization and investigation of a shipwreck, specific signs, localization of points of interest and of possible ways inside the ship, safety rules in case of an unsteady chamber in the ship, general vision of the state of preservation of the shipwreck and a selection of specific exercises aimed specially for shipwreck diving. A good buoyancy technique is essential, which is why we will adjust your position and stability, in a way that you will reduce your consumption and gain comfort. Also, we sill study in depth details of the immersion you have never seen before.

ORGANIZATION: You won’t have to adjust to a specific course calendar, we organize each immersion based on your schedule needs., though we usually start at 9 A.M. to have time to make an immersion and finish before lunchtime. We spend around half an hour reviewing theory before each course immersion, as well as explaining the exercises we will practice in each immersion.

Night Diver

Diving at night, everything changes.

Other species never seen in daylight, immersions full of color, nocturnal atmosphere, the moon and stars… Night diving never called you attention? It’s amazing. In your Advanced Course you had the choice of doing a night dive to get a glimpse into this incredible adventure. Sometimes you ask yourself, what is the Night Diver specialty course for? I can already do night dives with my Advanced certification. The night immersions everywhere in the world are easy, in spots close to the shore and at shallow depths. But in many cases we can plan something different…

GENERAL OVERVIEW: Diving in a shipwreck at night, or drift diving in the middle of nowhere could seem very attractive. This can be archieved though training. If you have other specialties, like Wreck or Deep, and also good experience as a diver, this is your specialty to complete a good curriculum and be able to come with us to those night dives we only do with the most experienced divers.

THEORY: To do the theory we will give you the PADI Wreck Diver manual specially dedicated to the NADIR, and after reading it you will complete the easy knowledge review featured on the last pages.

EXERCISE PART: During the 4 course immersions we will practice night navigation and orientation, we will analyze the kind of life we can find in these immersions and their predator behavior. Also, we will practice the protocols in case of loosing lights (we will navigate in the dark and you will have to do the stop at 3 meters (9,84 feet) and ascend to the surface without lights), emergencies at night, ascensions and drops in buoyancy in more depth than -12 meters (-39,3 feet), releasing the marker buoy in a safety stop, breathing from a safety tank, etc Everything to be trained and ready to dive in the NADIR at night, among other surprises..

ORGANIZATION: You won’t have to adjust to a specific course calendar, we organize each immersion based on your schedule needs., though we usually start at 9 A.M. to have time to make an immersion and finish before lunchtime.

Drift Diver

Let yourself drift in the currents

The greatest marine life and beautiful dives are usually located in areas where currents are a decisive fact for the good quality of the waters. This is why it’s very interesting to complete your training and get to know in detail everything about an immersion in currents.

Obviously currents produce hydro dynamism in an area, which implies the transportation and movement of nutrients that will be devoured by the smallest species. Because of this, the trophic chain has continuity and in the areas that are rich in nutrients we will be able to find great biodiversity. Which is what happens in our area at Cabo de Palos.

Diving in currents implies planning our immersion with good sense and cancelling if we think the current is going to be very strong. Thanks to our experience we will be able to measure the direction of the current and if we know very well the profile of the immersion, we will be able do perform it successfully.

Thanks to years of experience in areas with currents such as Cabo de Palos and the Red Sea, we guarantee a currents course in which you will learn not only the theory, but also the experience that we have accumulated in this type of immersion.

The current diving techniques start with a good evaluation of the direction and strength of the currents from the surface. You will learn to use the safety lines to ensure you enter and descend confidently in the water, to navigate like a sailboat facing the current in diagonal, to choose very well the route of your immersion and the protocols in case of an emergency. We will do the safety stop with the safety line and we will pretend it’s breakage to learn how to use the emergency buoy.

Why do it with Balkysub?

– We dive daily in currents at Cabo de Palos and we know the techniques perfectly, which is why we will teach you in immersions you would never be able to do without training.

– You can start any day.

– Though the specialties you access the planning of specific immersions

– You continue your training and acquire experience in immersions with a Balkysub instructor.

Drysuit Diver

Dive comfortably warm and dry

There is nothing better than avoiding being cold when diving and the best dives happen out of summer season, when everything is more affordable and there are less people.

To fight the cold the best thing is to avoid getting wet diving, which is why the use of the dry suit is the best option. To be able to use it you must do the training that teaches you how to use it safely.

In the course you will learn about the different types of dry suits, about the materials and use, and about the different features in each one.

We will practice buoyancy exercises and general use. Once you have the certification you will be able to buy yours or rent one here at our school. We have 18 dry suits at your disposal from October till May.

In the course we will do 2 dry suit immersions. Like in the rest of the courses, you will receive your student manual, we will do the theory lessons, then the immersions and you will get your PADI Dry Suit Certification.
