Have you ever thought about diving on Enriched Air (Nitrox) or wondered what Nitrox actually is?

We all know the compressed air we breathe while diving is 79% Nitrogen and 21% Oxygen. Enriched Air means that there is a higher percentage of oxygen, usually anywhere from 21%-40%. Scuba diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you longer no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive dives. You can typically stay down longer, and get back in the water sooner. Not to mention by lowering the amount of Nitrogen, you reduce your risk of getting the “bends.”


  • Techniques for getting more dive time by using Enriched Air Nitrox
  • Enriched air considerations, including managing oxygen exposure, how to tell what’s in your scuba tank and how to set your dive computer

This is a non-diving specialty. We offer this course through PADI E-Learning, which means you can complete all of the theory in the comfort of your own home, and once you are finished all you need to do is schedule a time with us to come in and meet with an instructor, who will teach you how to properly analyze a tank., and answer any questions you might have had trouble with on your own.
