By learning to use Nitrox (enriched air) you will now be capable of diving for extended periods of time compared to just using normal air.
WHAT IS IT?
Nitrox is air with higher than normal levels of oxygen between 21% and 40%. By using nitrox you can (in some cases) stay at a certain depth 50% longer with no increase in decompression risk.

The Enriched Air Diver course is Go Dive Pacific’s most popular specialty scuba course. Scuba diving with enriched air ‘nitrox’ gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. The nitrox course is available to all open water diver at or above the age of 12.
What will you learn?
