PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Course
3 Day 2 Night Liveaboard
Enriched Air (also known as Nitrox) is a Nitrogen/Oxygen mix that has a greater percentage of Oxygen and a lesser percentage of Nitrogen in it than normal air which means safer diving and potentially longer bottom times due to reduced nitrogen absorption. Enriched Air diving is ideal when doing multiple dives over multiple days like on our 3 day dive trip.
This course is run in conjunction with our 3 day 2 night dive trip and consists of some theory and 2 training dives so it can all be easily completed onboard as there are no formal classroom sessions involved with this course.
The theory involved requires you to read first the PADI "Enriched Air (Nitrox) Course manual and answer the relevant knowledge reviews before completing the two training dives. You will have plenty of free time to complete your knowledge reviews on the initial trip out to the reef.
You'll have the opportunity to participate in up to 11 dives, 9 day dives and 2 night dives, over the duration of the trip and once completed your Enriched Air Divers course all remaining dives can be dived on Nitrox.
Pre-requisite for this course is a PADI Open water certificate or the equivalent certification with another training agency. (Minimum certification PADI Junior Open Water and 12 years of age)

Important Information for Course Participants
Prior to commencing your Continuing Education Dive Course you are required to complete the self-assessment Continuing Education Student Diver Medical Declaration. A positive response to any question means that there is a pre-existing condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must consult a medical practitioner preferably with experience in diving medicine to obtain a dive medical certificate that states that you are fit to undertake recreational diver training.
To avoid disappointment we suggest that you complete the Continuing Education Student Diver Medical Declaration and if necessary obtain a dive medical from a doctor prior to commencement. (Any costs associated in this process are payable direct to the doctor). This must be completed within 12 months of the course commencement.
If you are unsure about a specific medical condition please check with your doctor or with us prior to making your reservation.
