PADi Enriched Air Nitrox Speciality Course

The PADi Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver course is PADI's most popular specialty dive course. The reason for this is the reduced percentage of nitrogen so extending the possible dive time, and reducing the risk of decompression sickness. Nitrox is an air mix with an oxygen content above 21%. Reducing the proportion of nitrogen by increasing the proportion of oxygen, means staying down longer and getting back in the water quicker. During the 1 day course you will learn Enriched air considerations, including managing oxygen exposure, how to analyse your scuba tank and how to set your dive computer or use dive tables.

** Optional dives on Nitrox can be arranged


Padi Nitrox Course includes:

  • Tuition and instruction from our highly trained professionals
  • PADi Enriched Air Nitrox Diver manual
  • Personal certification card
  • Full equipment hire during course including specialist equipment needed
  • Transfers to and from dive centre and dive locations
  • Snacks and drinks between and after dives
