PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course

PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course

Get Enriched Air Nitrox certified and See More of The Fantastic Scuba Diving Sites In Phuket

The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course 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 like Phuket where we do 3 dives a day with 1hr surface intervals so 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 certainly be conducted in full on a single dive tour. Once you’ve analysed your tank and logged the details you will dive as normal.

I have just completed my Nitrox course and 3 days diving with Local Dive Thai. The entire experience from booking to the last dive was excellent. They prioritise safety and enjoyment and have excellent equipment. The boat is well equipped and the food and refreshments are tasty. I had a great time and my dive guides inspired confidence and found some great creatures which I captured on video. Gastroknome – TA Member

What Will I learn On My PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course?

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.

Dazzling colour changes and perfect camouflage make octopus a favourite with everybody diving in Phuket but how do they perform this magic trick, well it's not mirrors, sorcery or witchcraft it's a complex combination of muscle, nerves, brain and skin pigments.
