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.

Racha Noi – West Side

This side of the island is exposed to the low season weather making the topography completely different from the east side. Any sand gets washed away exposing the granite rocks that tumble down to meet the usually clear water. Both of our regular dive sites are quite similar and easy to manage if there is current. We'll always start the dive in the sheltered bay and if you're participating in a PADI Discover Scuba Diving or Open Water [...]

Where To Stay In Phuket – Chalong Bay

Where to stay in Phuket can be a bit of a headache, there's plenty of beach resorts. If you're coming to Phuket mainly for diving day tours then Chalong is the best area to stay. All of the day tours leave from Chalong Pier so you'll cut your daily travel time significantly. Although getting to the pier from the main tourist areas of Patong, Kata or Karon doesn't take too long there are days when the traffic is particular bad or one of the di [...]

It's relatively cheap, can be done in one day, straight forward and really is beneficial to the diver.

So by simply putting more oxygen into our scuba tank, therefor reducing the amount of nitrogen we [...]
