The PADI Nitrox Course provides you with knowledge on how to plan recreational dives using Enriched Air Nitrox (EAN). For recreational diving, this refers to a gas mixture with an oxygen concentration higher than the 21% found in air. 32% oxygen is the most common mix used. It is this higher oxygen percentage that that allows divers to lengthen their no-decompression limits. Additionally, it allows for shorter surface intervals between dives.
The PADI / SSI Nitrox Course can be completed with or without (*) dives. The non-diving option is the ideal way to spend your last non-diving day at Umbi Sharks Bay – especially if lying on the beach is not your thing!
The course consists of knowledge development where you will learn why diving on Nitrox gives you a longer bottom time. You will also cover enriched air equipment considerations and how to analyse your tank.
If you choose to make the PADI Nitrox Course with the two dives then these dives can easily be done on our house reef, here at Umbi Sharks Bay Diving Village. Alternatively you can incorporate the PADI Nitrox Course into your daily dive package. It can also be completed on one of our Red Sea Liveaboards.
If a student has any of the medical conditions that are listed then signed clearance from a doctor experienced in diving medicine must be provided on check-in, this can also be arranged locally with the doctors at the hyperbaric chamber.
Not sure if the course is for you? Then why not do a Nitrox Introductory Dive for just € 30. Perfect to do when you dive Thistlegorm. Just ask the diving staff for details once you are with us.
