The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is the most popular PADI Specialty course in the world.

This is due to the increased content of O2 in the air giving you longer no decompression times, especially so on repetitive dives.

PADI SIDEMOUNT COURSE
Ever wondered why divers have their tank on the back?
Yes exactly, you don’t need to. At BeeDivers Diving you can learn how to dive with 2 tanks or a single tank side mounted in the PADI Sidemount course . This tank modification comes from the technical diving world, but gets more and more popular in recreational diving. With good reason. With 2 tanks you can extend your bottom time to explore a specific reef longer or, as you are more streamlined, can easier access wrecks or caves. And as you are better balanced, you can shoot steadier pictures while looking cool at the same time.
