PADI Enriched Air Nitrox

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.

All bony fish have a set of pharyngeal teeth in their throat but moray eels have a complete pharyngeal second jaw that they can launch forward and use to swallow their unfortunate victims. Co [...]
