Why Nitrox?

Enriched air, also known as nitrox or EANx, contains more oxygen and less nitrogen than regular air. Breathing less nitrogen means you can extend your no-stop decompression limits, offering the potential for longer allowable dive times and shorter allowable surface intervals. Alternatively, it can be a tool for divers to make diving safer by reducing the risk of decompression illness.

Enriched Air Diver is the most popular PADI specialty and while it is a valuable asset for any diver, is an ideal choice for divers who:

1.) have superior air consumption who want to safely do longer dives

2.) do repetitive dives (more than one dive in a day). Especially useful for liveaboard diving.

3.) have higher susceptibility to decompression sickness (older, overweight, have a genetic predisposition, have experienced symptoms of decompression sickness in the past, etc.).
