Did you know that diving with Nitrox is not just fun – it has many other benefits too? Here at Two Fish Divers Gili Air, all of our PADI instructors are also PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Specialty Instructors!
PADI Nitrox Specialty Course
The PADI Nitrox Specialty is one of PADI’s most popular certifications because it gives you a longer bottom time due to a higher oxygen content in your tank. This means that you can stay longer at depth during your dive. How long your dive is, however, still determined by your breathing, so it’s also important to practice calm and deep breathing for longer dives.
Many ask us if diving with Nitrox is safer. Unfortunately we can’t answer that so easily. On one hand, due to the higher oxygen content, the body absorbs less nitrogen, which is theoretically safer, however, on the other hand, there is an increased risk of oxygen toxicity due to the higher oxygen content. When diving with enriched air we have to strictly observe our maximum depth – that’s why the understanding you will gain when you take the PADI Nitrox Specialty is invaluable.
Did you know that the PADI Enriched Air Specialty Course counts as one of the 5 Specialtycertifications needed to become a PADI Master Scuba Diver?
You can complete the Enriched Air (PADI Nitrox Specialty) Diver course in one day and then dive straight away with Nitrox at some of our famous deep dive sites like Deep Turbo, Shark Point, Mirkos Reef, Air Wall and Halik. There you can see whitetip and blacktip sharks, octopuses, trevallies that are hunting and beautiful and pristine corals.
