Enriched Air Nitrox
Enriched Air Nitrox is PADI's most popular course, and one that gives you a tremendous benefit in your diving - more bottom time!
Enriched Air Nitrox deals with diving with more that the standard 21% oxygen found in the air we breathe everyday. Most common is 32% oxygen, which delivers 50% more oxygen in every breath than standard air.
To see how much this can help, a dive to 80 feet with air has a maximum bottom time of 30 minutes. With 32% oxygen, you can stay down for 45 minutes - a 50% increase in dive time to explore a wreck, photograph fish, or take a selfie with an eel (we won't judge).
This course is available in both traditional classroom formats, and an eLearning format, enabling you to study at your own pace, and then come in and meet your instructor at MDS to practice what you learn.
