DIVE RIGHT ANNOUNCES ZEAGLE'S STATUS I NITROX DIVING COMPUTER

For the recreational diver using one Nitrox mixture per dive!

A flexible Nitrox computer from Zeagle that won't lock you out!

STATUS I FEATURES:

Two internal dive tables - NORMAL (more liberal) and SHORT (more conservative) which can be selected based upon the diver's physical conditioning, water conditions, nitrogen from previous dives or diving soon after going to altitude.

LED lighting with TAP switch for night or dim light conditions.

Diver selectable Audible and Visual ascent rate, CNS% and PO2 warnings

PC Downloadable

Adjustable for imperial or metric units.

Automatic battery restoration cycle for fewer battery changes.

You can change the battery when finally necessary.

Underwater TAP switch for LED light and audio alarms option.

Complete dive simulation program for dive planning.

Water salinity correction factor for more accurate depth calibration.

NITROX FEATURES:

Adjustable Fraction of Oxygen FO2 from 21% to 50% in 1% increments.

Diver adjustable Oxygen partial pressure limit warning of 1.2 to 1.6 atmospheres of oxygen.

Status computers use a Modified Buhlman table model with EAD calculations for Nitrox.

A CNS clock gives both digital percentage and graphic display.

The current partial pressure of O2 is displayed while diving.

Oxygen Toxicity Units monitor.

IN ADDITION: if you commit a violation of safe diving parameters such as excess depth or time, missed decompression stops, or other errors, the Status Series of diving computers will continue to calculate and display all functions but store the violation in memory.

Other dive computers may "lock you out" ceasing to calculate your nitrogen loading and decompression requirements and become an expensive bottom timer and depth gauge.

See the Status II if you need a two-gas Nitrox computer for stage decompression mixes to 100% Oxygen.


PADI Nitrox Specialty Diver and Zeagle Status I Nitrox Computer Package Special.

Dive Right - Coron announces a Nitrox Package Special Offer:

To take the maximum advantage of Nitrox you should consider using a Nitrox dive computer. The dive computer has revolutionized diving by allowing easy multi-level diving. You get increased bottom time for multi-level diving compared to planning dives on the PADI Recreational Dive Planner Table or Wheel.

If you don't already have a diving computer, taking the PADI Nitrox Diver course is a good reason to consider this invaluable piece of diving equipment a necessity. A Nitrox diving computer allows you to do multi-level dives on Nitrox as well as on air. You simply set the Oxygen percentage of your Nitrox mixture prior to your dive. When making this important purchase make sure you read about how diving computers work, review technical evaluations in diving magazines, and most importantly, talk to a PADI Nitrox Instructor.

Consider the Zeagle Status 1 Nitrox computer. It has the ability to be adjusted from very conservative limits if you are out of shape or tired or performing many dives, or to be adjusted to allow very aggressive technical diving profiles. The Status 1 is suitable for using one Nitrox mixture during the dive.

The Status 2 computer allows use of a second Nitrox mixture for staged decompression diving.

To receive our special package price take your PADI Nitrox Diver Specialty Course at Dive Right - Coron or make EIGHT Nitrox dives with Dive Right - Coron.


PADI - PROJECT AWARE (Aquatic World Awareness Responsibility and Education)

10 Ways a Diver Can Protect the Underwater Environment

NUNBER 3: Keep your diving skills sharp with continuing education.

The PADI System of Diver Education is not only how to progress in diving, but also how to get back up to the level of competence of your previous training class. Consider SCUBA REVIEW.

After an extended absence from diving, usually six months or more, Scuba Review will refresh your technical knowledge of diving and your diving skills. The brief knowledge review and discussion with a PADI Professional of any of the Safe Diving Practices that you've forgotten will ensure you are diving to safe standards. The skills session in shallow water will refresh your basic and emergency skills and guarantee your comfort and feeling of well being when you jump off of the dive boat into a deep dive. If you're using rental equipment, the skills review session will allow you to become familiar with it and handle it while practicing emergency skills in shallow water.

Continuing education also means gaining diving knowledge and experience. For a PADI Open Water Diver the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course will open your eyes to new and fun WAYS of diving and give you safe experience under the watchful eyes of a PADI Instructor.


Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas and a WET New Year from your Friends at Dive Right!

Boracay & Coron, Palawan


Dive Right - Coron is selected to teach 8 Philipino divers for the National Integrated Protected Areas Program

Dive Right - Coron manager and PADI Instructor Peter Gannon assisted by long-time local resident and PADI Divemaster Dennis Hunter has been selected to train eight Philipino divers for the National Integrated Protected Areas Program sponsored by the European Union. After training, these local divers will be responsible for surveying and evaluating local underwater environmental conditions. These divers will be trained using the PADI System of Diver Education. They will receive the PADI Open Water Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver Courses to prepare them to be responsible diver planners and competent dive buddies.


Dive Right - Boracay helps to eradicate reef eating starfish!

Dive Right - Boracay and the other members of the Boracay Association of Scuba Schools undertook a project to rid the local reefs of Crown-of-Thorns starfish. On December 22 we contributed tanks, our dive boat and staff to this program to clean these coral predators off of the reefs.

Approximately 80 starfish were removed and destroyed. We say approximately because no one wanted to make a careful final count of these thorny predators. It was bad enough to have to handle them to peel them off of the reef.

Divers beware, besides getting stuck on the spines there is a danger of skin irritation or worse from mucus on the exterior of the starfish.
