Why Should You Take This Course?
Nitrox is most beneficial at depths between 50-130 ft/15-40 meters. It is also a much safer gas for us to breathe while diving many times during the same day, or if we are doing multiple dives a day for multiple days, like on a liveaboard trip. Since we absorb less nitrogen with Nitrox, we can have longer no decompression limits (especially on consecutive dives), shorter surface intervals and can even be more conservative on our dives by using Nitrox while diving on air profiles. Some dive sites will not even be worth exploring without nitrox, like Gordo Banks, which is the best dive site in the Los Cabos area to see schooling hammerhead sharks. Now, who would want to miss that amazing experience?
Join one of our PADI Enriched Air Nitrox courses, and add a great tool to your ‘dive skills bag’. Choose to use it when it benefits your dive, or not to use it if it doesn’t fit the situation. But It’s always worth having!
