  • Why go diving with Nitrox? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives.
  • If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.
  • If you’re a (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Enriched Air Diver Specialty course.
  • What will you learn?
  • You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During a practical session, and two optional scuba dives, you’ll:
    • Discuss managing oxygen exposure
    • Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank
    • Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox
