WHY PADI Enriched Air Diving
PRICE: $130.00 includes materials
PREREQS: Age 12
You will be certified for life as an Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver, qualifying you to independently plan and conduct Enriched Air Nitrox dives with up to 40% Oxygen to a maximum operating depth of 1.4 ata O2 partial pressure.
If you've ever wanted to stay at depth longer than allowed by the no-decompression limits of air, then the PADI Enriched Air Diver specialty course is for you. Nitrogen is a big limiting factor on bottom time, but with Enriched Air Nitrox, we reduce the amount of nitrogen in the breathing mixture by enriching the air with extra oxygen, which results in extended no-decompression limits. Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more time to explore the diversity of Roatan's reef, on the sheer walls and wrecks.
What do I need to start?
You must be at least 12 years old and be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver (or other qualifying certification). It is preferred that you already be certified as PADI Advanced Open Water or be enrolled in the course in order to reach the depths at which Enriched Air Nitrox is most beneficial. To get the most out of your Nitrox dives, good air consumption is an added bonus.
WHAT WILL I DO?
Enriched Air Nitrox carries a few additional risks due to the higher oxygen content, compared with air. The knowledge development sessions teach you how to analyze the oxygen content, anticipate the risk involved with oxygen, and plan your dives accordingly. Although the course is not inclusive of a dive, we offer you a free upgrade of one fun dive from air to Nitrox upon completion of the course.
