The Ocean Gear Enriched Air Nitrox Diver course is one of our most popular specialty scuba course. Why? Simply said, Nitrox is safer.  Because scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don’t hesitate to become an enriched air diver.

You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During our 2-3 group sessions (offered virtually) you’ll:

  • Discuss managing oxygen exposure.
  • Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
  • Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.

You may be able to get college credit for the Ocean Gear Enriched Air Nitrox Diver course – ask your instructor to learn more.

Most modern scuba equipment and dive computers can be used with enriched air, but your Ocean Gear Instructor will let you know if your gear meets manufacturer recommendations and local requirements.  You’ll practice using oxygen analyzers and special cylinder decals. Your Ocean Gear Instructor, along with the rest of our staff, will happily explain other equipment you may need to enjoy enriched air diving.  The Nitrox Course is unique in that it is the only course that can be conducted simultaneously with most any other dive course.
