Enriched Air Diver Course - Nitrox

  • PADI's Enriched Air Diver course is the opportunity to learn how to safely use enriched air. 

    By diving with enriched air - nitrox rather than standard air you can extend your no decompression limits. This means more time underwater safely. For example, if you dive to 50 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes. But, diving on an enriched air mixture of 36% you get 220 minutes of no decompression time – an increase of 140 minutes.

    In addition diving with enriched air or sometimes call nitrox its said to be less fatiguing to the body, a benefit to older and younger dives alike.

    Adventure Scuba offers the Enriched Air Diver course for certification from PADI . Whether you’re into underwater photography or wreck diving, on vacation in some tropical paradise or just out for a leisurely day of diving at your local dive site, the PADI Enriched Air Diver course helps you get more out of diving by giving you more time underwater.  Begin the Enriched Air Diver course here.
