Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver

Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver

Enriched air, also known as nitrox or EANx, contains less nitrogen than regular air. Breathing less nitrogen means you can enjoy longer dives and shorter surface intervals. No wonder Enriched Air Diver is the most popular PADI® specialty.

eLearning covers self-study material. Your dive shop will charge training fees.
