NITROX DIVER Extend your bottom time!

The PADI Diving Enriched Air Nitrox with OLYMPUS DIVE CENTER

PADI E-Learn

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba diving course, and it’s easy to see why. Scuba diving with Enriched Air Nitrox gives you more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives.

The Fun Part

At Olympus Dive Center we are committed to providing our students with the safest and highest quality Scuba training available. As a full-service Nitrox facility, we have over 20,000 cu. ft. of premixed Nitrox and plenty of rental tanks in both 80cu. ft. and 100cu. ft. We believe that ocean diving plays an integral role in the training process and Nitrox is the best breathing gas with which to explore our magnificent deeper shipwrecks. The greatest benefit of Nitrox to the diver is less Nitrogen absorption by the body resulting in longer bottom times. Olympus can meet any of your breathing gas needs no matter what type of diving you enjoy.

Your Next Adventure

  • Diving with enriched air nitrox benefits all types of diving, but it goes especially well with these specialties:
  • PADI Wreck Diver course – Popular wrecks tend to be deeper, so enriched air nitrox maximizes your exploration time
  • PADI Deep Diver course – The deeper you dive, the shorter your no stop time – but enriched air nitrox increases it, giving you more time at depth
  • PADI Digital Underwater Photographer – Photographers usually like to make several dives so they can get lots of pictures. Enriched air nitrox reduces the amount of residual nitrogen you accumulate, allowing repetitive dives to be longer
  • PADI Master Scuba Diver The PADI Enriched Air Diver course counts toward your Master Scuba Diver rating -- the highest non-professional rating in recreational diving
