PADI Enriched Air Nitrox

See More of The Fantastic Scuba Diving Sites In Phuket When You Dive With Nitrox

Enriched Air 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 such as Phuket where we do 3 dives a day with 1hr surface intervals it’s a particular 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 even be conducted in full on a single dive tour. Once you’ve analysed your tank and logged the details you will dive as normal.

During the course you’ll learn why diving with a tank that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, how to manage oxygen exposure, practice analysing your tank and setting your computer for the dive.

In Thailand you must be at least 12 years old and Open Water certified to enrol on the course.

Phuket Diving Site Elephant Head Rock

Elephant Head Rock

Elephant Head Rock is a large rocky pinnacle that nestles between Similan Islands seven and eight. The strong current that runs between the two islands has washed the granite boulders on Elephant Head Rock smooth and created lots of really nice swim-throughs. Although strong currents are frequently prevalent the large size of the pinnacle ensures there is always a sheltered and safe area to dive and is often the first dive of the day to allow divers to explore the deeper areas of the site and catch the whitetip reef sharks cruising around on the southeast corner. If you do miss them on the first part of the dive then there's always a chance to see one resting in the many cracks and cave [...]
