"We are Diving down to 26 metres, watching 12 Grey Nurse Sharks at Manta Arch, we have taken heaps of photos but just want that perfect shot. But we have to go, our computers are telling us we are low on bottom time, if only we had been trained as a PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Diver, we could have stayed an extra 10 minutes!"
The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Diver course is fast becoming our best seller, Why not when you can get more out of a dive using it!
The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Diver course explains why diving with Enriched Air Nitrox lets you safely extend your no stop time beyond the no decompression limits for air. Diving with Nitrox means more time underwater – but you need to be certified as an Enriched Air Nitrox Diver to get enriched air fills.
Learn how to and the importance to analyze EANx cylinder contents and Plan enriched air dives using Nitrox Dive Computers. Safely increase your no stop time.
Here’s your chance to spend more time on some of our favourite deeper sites like Manta Arch playing with the Grey Nurse Sharks!
The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course can be without real dives (using the new simulator with the course materials) , however we recommend at least 2 Enriched Air Nitrox dives to get the experience.

The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course can be completed in less than one day with independant study and practical training session in our Dive Centre.
The latest version of the Padi Enriched Air Nitrox course using Dive Computers, not tables, has made it easy to understand and complete the course.
It makes sense, if you are using Nitrox, you are probably using a computer when diving, why not learn to use that, and not go through the hassle of dive tables.
With the Dive Simulator, no dives are necessary, however we like you to experience Enriched Air Nitrox with us. If you have your own Nitrox computer, we step through the operation, so you get the understanding on how to set up for Nitrox.
Myths about Nitrox Enriched Air!
“Nitrox or Enriched Air will not give you better Air consumption!”
Answer: If you consume your air quickly, your main benefit from a Nitrox Course will be that, although your bottom time will be limited on your first dive by your consumption rate – you can now have a shorter surface interval, or longer, deeper second dive. If you want a third dive, it is no problem at all with No Deco Limit’s. So even Air guzzlers can benefit from a Nitrox Course!
“Enriched Air Nitrox dives are safer!”
Answer: Not exactly correct, if you dive well within the no-decompression lmits on air you are safe anyway, sure Nitrox allows for less absorbtion of nitrogen, so for the same time underwater, you have less absorbed nitrogen than on air, this can be of benefit if you have predisposing factors which could increase your nitrogen uptake, like age, fitness and exertion (to name a few!)
