Nitrox makes a significant difference when it comes to bottom time.
Do you enjoy diving activities such as wreck diving, underwater photography and Deep Diving? Did you know that using enriched air during such dives can give you more time to explore that wreck, enjoy longer repetitive dives and have more time at depth. When you experience it for yourself, you will see just how beneficial it can be.
There are different Enriched Air Diver course options available.
Once you have decided to enroll in the Enriched Air Diver course, there are a couple of different options. You can choose:
- Enriched Air Diver (with Computer assist) - In this course you will learn how dive computers track and calculate your dive using Nitrox.

We at Destination Scuba provide both formats and reccommend the Enriched Air Diver course using tables. It is always beneficial to learn as much as possible during your continuing education dive courses. This particular course format is an excellent way to gain valuable knowledge to enhance your experience using Nitrox.
