The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course can now be taken as part of the Open Water Diver Course, and any level beyond. This recent change was introduced after the numerous safety advantages of diving with Nitrox were realized.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because Scuba Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives, and decreased Nitrogen loading increases all round safety. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an Enriched Air Diver.

During this Koh Tao scuba diving you’ll learn why diving with air that has a 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 Oxygen Exposure
  • Analyze Cylinder O2 Contents
  • Learn how to pair your Dive Computer
