What will you learn?
Our PADI Enriched Air Nitrox is one of the most interesting and academic diving courses available. In our course we offer a greater understanding of what’s happening to your body: decompression theory, gas laws, physiology, dive planning, managing oxygen exposure and so much more.
Nitrox is a great course for divers who want to learn more about dive science and benefit from a more efficient breathing medium that allows more bottom time, allowing divers to see more, dive more and do more dives per day with shorter surface intervals.
Minimum age is 12 years, however, we feel 15 years of age is more suited to the scope of the academics, unless doing a simplified computer based nitrox course.
Take this course as part of your Open Water course or your Advanced Open Water Course.
Nitrox is the most popular dive specialty available now on the market. Divers looking to advanced their diving to a more skill and theory oriented style of diving can use Nitrox as a stepping stone towards deeper, more advanced, technical, cave diving applications, as well as rebreather diving.
Diving Nitrox Allows Divers to:
- Do more dives per day
- Reduce Nitrogen Uptake by reducing the risk of Decompression Illness. By giving your body much needed oxygen to supply tissue/oxygen demands if diving nitrox as air, you on-gass less N2 and increase safety reducing the risk of DCS by up to 46%.
- More Bottom Time increasing NO Stop dive limits. * For Example Diving an EAN40 (40% Oxygen/60% Nitrogen) gives a diver 240 min’s of No Decompression time at 60fsw vs. 60ft for 55min’s on regular air diving tables.
- Reduce Post Dive Fatigue. No more feeling burned out after air dives. Nitrox will make you feel better and more awake after dives.
At Dan’s we teach the Highest Quality Nitrox Course around. No one has as much experience in the field of mixed gas and technical diving than Dan’s, so learn from the best.
Our facility has been the top nitrox and technical dive training facility since the 1990’s. If you want the most thorough Nitrox training course, ours is the one you’ll want.
