At Shellharbour Scuba Centre, we specialise in PADI Enriched Air Diver (Nitrox) scuba diving and are proud to offer this popular speciality Adventure Dive as one of our many options. Diving with “enriched air,” also known as Nitrox, enables divers to remain submerged for longer with a greater no-decompression limit (NDL). A PADI Enriched Air Diver is able to partake in multiple dives or dive over several days as the body is subjected to less fatigue and, more importantly, less risk of serious illness. You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time; discuss managing oxygen exposure; practice analysing oxygen content in your scuba tank; set your dive computer for diving with enriched air Nitrox.
