PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver Course

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI's most popular specialty diving course.  Scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you no decompression dive time, which means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives.

You can typically stay down longer and get back in the water sooner, so it's no wonder many divers choose this as their very first specialty!

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.

Now with the convenience of PADI eLearning, you can take the classroom portion of the course on your time!
