The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course
The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course is by far the most popular PADI specialty course conducted in Phuket. Diving with nitrox gives you much more no decompression time than diving with normal air. In dive locations like Phuket where we do 3 dives a day with 1hr surface intervals. So it’s a particularly useful skill to have. The Similan Island liveaboards can schedule up to 4 dives a day. So we would absolutely recommend being nitrox certified before or during your trip.
It’s a straight forward course and now adapted to reflect modern diving with computers. The theory will only take a few hours of your holiday time and can certainly be conducted in full on a single dive tour. Once you’ve analyzed your tank and logged the details you will dive as normal.
What Will I learn On My PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course?
During the course you’ll learn why diving with a tank that has higher oxygen and lowers nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, how to manage oxygen exposure, practice analyzing your tank and setting your computer for the dive.
In Thailand, you must be at least 12 years old and Open Water certified to enroll in the course.
Our prices include everything you need for the course so there are no hidden costs for you to be concerned about. Your only responsibility is to wake up on time and enjoy the day!
The course can be conducted on any of our Phuket day trip tours but to really see the benefits of diving on nitrox we recommend the King Cruiser, Shark Point, Koh Doc Mai trip.
