About the Nitrox Specialty Course
If you are an Open Water Diver, you qualify to join our Nitrox Course. Nitrox mixtures contain higher levels of oxygen, which is advantageous to a scuba diver as it reduces nitrogen absorption, this allows for longer dive times and reducing the risk of decompression sickness. This is perfect for underwater photographers, wreck divers and anyone who wants to stay down longer. You will learn the preparation and diving procedures involved with enriched air diving.
How much longer can I stay underwater?
If you were to dive to 15 metres / 50 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes (approx). But, diving on Nitrox gets you 220 minutes of no decompression time - an increase of 140 minutes!
