ENRICHED AIR NITROX DIVER Stay Underwater Longer, And Get Back In The Water Sooner

The PADI Diving Enriched Air Nitrox with ACADEMY OF SCUBA

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.

Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx) increases the amount of oxygen in your breathing gas, and this in turn eliminates some of the nitrogen. All of this means that you can stay underwater safely for longer. EANx is also fantastic for divers who get tired after diving.

Your Next Adventure

  • 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.
  • PADI Master Scuba Diver The PADI Enriched Air Diver course counts toward your Master Scuba Diver rating -- the highest non professional rating in recreational diving.
