PADI Enriched Air Diver (NITROX)

PADI Enriched Air Diver (NITROX)

You drop into the crystal clear waters, decend to 16 metres, and begin to float along letting the beautiful reef float past. In what seems no time at all, you check your computer and realise you have no bottom time remaining, but still have air in your tank! What can you do ??

Why PADI Enriched Air Diver (NITROX)?

As you will know from your Open Water course, we are limited, due to the amount of nitrogen we absorb during a dive, as to the length of time we can remain at any given depth. If we reduce that amount of nitrogen and replace it with safe levels of oxygen, we are able to increase our bottom time. For those of you who are interested in the longer dives enriched air (nitrox) is the what allows you to do those longer dives!

"Initially chose the nitrox course to further my education and skills but found it to be so beneficial extending my dive times.

Nat delivered the course very well and made it enjoyable, also adding from his own experience.

Completed the two optional dives at NDAC on nitrox the following weekend.

Top course, Thankyou."

From Jason Cross, course taken July 2015

"Back too school for maths but no problem as this obviously blends with the course.
Enjoyed expanding my dive knowledge with this course and Ian`s knowledge is so apparent as is his ability to convey the theory.
Good to get your teeth into this course and it makes you hungry to do Advanced Nitrox."

From Alex Farah, course taken May 2009

"Thought i was finished with the maths forumlas but what a must have speciality course. but a special thanks to Ian for showing a better forumla after learning and getting to grips with the ones in the book, (But hey that is the purpose of the learning). But a big thank you Ian for your knowledge and teaching on this course. A far better understanding of the use of Nitrox for diving."
