PADI Nitrox specialty
The PADI Nitrox specialty is probably the most popular training among certified divers.
By reducing the amount of nitrogen accumulated in your body during a dive, Enriched Air allows for longer dives, less fatigue and is definitively a must for repetitive dives as you will experience on a Liveaboard trip.
What do I need to start?
- PADI Open Water Diver certification (or equivalent)
- Minimum age: 12
What will I do?
This certification includes 2 supervised dives and a knowledge development session. You will learn how to plan your dives to benefit of longer bottom times, how to analyze the content of your Nitrox tank and how to set up your dive computer for a specific mix.
Not Included :
- PADI Manual and certification fee
How long will it take?
The course takes only one day, and can be integrated seamlessly to your Liveaboard experience.
Our vessel the MV Pawara is equipped with a state of the art Nitrox mixing station, allowing for both partial pressure and continuous flow blending to suit all your needs.
Where can I go from here?
Diving with enriched air nitrox benefits all types of diving, but it goes especially well with these specialties:
- PADI Wreck Diver course – Popular wrecks tend to be deeper, so enriched air nitrox maximizes your exploration time.
- PADI Deep Diver course – The deeper you dive, the shorter your no stop time – but enriched air nitrox increases it, giving your more time at depth
- PADI Digital Underwater Photographer – Photographers usually like to make several dives so they can get lots of pictures. Enriched air nitrox reduces the amount of residual nitrogen you accumulate, allowing repetitive dives to be longer.
