COURSE STRUCTURE

Fundamentally, buoyancy has a lot to do with proper equipment configuration, the right amount of weights, proper breathing techniques and comfort level of the divers. When you put all these attributes together, you have a relaxed diver who is able to understand and apply their training in all conditions during a dive. This course is designed to impart the knowledge to you on how to achieve your Controlled Breathing, learning how to Relax, always Looking UP and knees UP, and Xtend arms during a dive.

ADVANCED BUOYANCY & TRIM

IT COMES FROM LEARNING AND PRACTISING

Achieving proper trim and buoyancy comes from learning the right techniques and proper supervision and practises.

WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE US

BY THE WAY, WE DO NOT PAY FOR REVIEWS AND NEITHER DO WE FORCE REVIEWS ON DIVERS

 

Prompt response: From initial enquiry to travel arrangement to PADI course details, Orpheus Dive has never failed to reply timely, even exceeding expectations!

Hassle-free & flexible to needs: Additional pool sessions requested for were arranged according to our schedules, all we had to do was to make payment. All other logistics arrangements were settled by Orpheus Dive, including the actual trip for PADI training and certification.

Patient & professional dive instructors: Had Lester, Hamish & Darwin train our group and they were very extremely professional in teaching the required skills. Special shout-out to Darwin who has been most patient, most encouraging, most kind to help learners overcome fears and anxiety. He even went the extra mile to take underwater photos and videos to serve as a motivational tool and of course, those were most helpful in the post-dive review sessions. Outstanding service through and through!

You teach with passion, you are very focus and analytic. You corrected my problems during the lesson. You took time to explain every single drills, you added new stuff to make the training fun. You go through again to make sure I understand. I think you are not just a instructor , but an amazing Teacher.

I want to say thank you to especially Michael & Darwin for tonight lesson.

Alan Fong

From zero to a certified advanced open water diver over one weekend, it would not be possible with the guidance from Michael and Nicholas, really, thank you very much for your help for this trip!

Lynn Pang

My sister and I have just recently completed our open water course with Orpheus. The class that we were in had a small ratio of 1 instructor to 3 students and our instructor, Nicholas Chow, was awesome! He was very patient throughout and ensured that each of us was able to carry out a specified task before moving onto next. I was also experiencing seasickness on the first day of the dive and Nicholas was quick to pass me ointments/seasick pills plus shared with me some very helpful tips on overcoming seasickness/equalization problems. Overall, I had a very enjoyable experience and felt safe throughout the course ( I would highly recommend Orpheus to everyone – thanks Orpheus!

Can we combined other PADI Specialty for this workshop.

Only PADI Enriched Air Diver Specialty can be combined with this workshop. There are too many new things being taught and we do not want to overly task load new divers.

w

What if we are unable to go into trim.

Assuming that your basic self skills are taught correctly and you do not have other issues with your diving skills except for buoyancy, then we do not see any issues of not getting you in trim.

w

Can I get a discount if I have the equipment

Unfortunately, whether you have everything, there is no discounts given for this workshop.

w

I have not dived for a long time. Can I attend this workshop?

Yes you can, after you have completed a scuba refresher prior to attending this course. This trip will not have enough time to go through all your basic skills all over again.

w

Is this workshop conducted at all times?

The T.A.P Workshop can be conducted on any weekend over in Bali. But we do have a requirement of 2 students before we can conduct this course to cover our expenses.

w

Would it be okay if I signed up the course alone?

Yes, that is perfectly fine. But you have to wait for one more candidate before we start class.
