EXTENDED RANGE Go deeper and stay longer.

Certain areas of the world provide spectacular dives at depths deeper than 130 feet but you will not have access (or very limited access) to helium.

The Extended Range course will cover topics and skills such as

• Equipment requirements and configuration
• Decompression options
