Increase Your Dive Time Dive Enriched Air Nitrox!

This 1 day course is designed to teach divers to use EANx enriched air (commonly named Nitrox) for no stop recreational diving. EANx has become mainstream and is widely available in many popular dive destinations. Many Pattaya based dive centres use enriched air and most of Thailand’s diving liveaboards now have enriched air nitrox on board as standard. Our Seafari Dive Trip boats can also carry Nitrox on request, and your course can be combined with either a day trip or another dive course. The PADI Nitrox course starts with a classroom session, learning all about EANx and how to plan dives. On the next day you can dive nitrox! It’s also possible to make the Nitrox theory online with eLearning.

So, what is Enriched Air Nitrox?

The term ‘Nitrox’ refers to any gas blend composed of nitrogen and oxygen; this actually includes normal air which is approximately 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen, plus about 1% inert gases. The most common use of nitrox mixes containing higher than the normal 21% oxygen is in scuba diving, where the reduced nitrogen is an advantage that allows you to reduce your adsorbed nitrogen. This leads to extending the possible dive time, and/or reducing surface interval time and maybe even reducing the risk of decompression sickness. Many divers report feeling less tired when using Nitrox, though energy levels can be affected by factors other than nitrogen intake also. Enriched Air requires the use of special scuba tank due to the higher than normal oxygen content, and also the use of a Nitrox Dive Computer. You must be very careful to check your oxygen content before diving and use the computer correctly.

If you’re going to get your own dive computer, check it has Nitrox mode. Most dive computers have the ability to use Nitrox, you just need to program the correct oxygen percentage (commonly between 32 – 36% for recreational dives).
