PADI Enriched Air Diver (Basic Nitrox)

From €150


The PADI Enriched Air (Basic Nitrox) Specialty will allow you to use a mix with more Oxygen.

The Nitrox Specialty is the most popular of the PADI specialties.  The reason is that diving with Enriched Air Nitrox allows a longer no decompression limit, signifying more time underwater, particularly for repeat dives.

You can stay underwater longer and return faster.  This is why many dives choose this as their first specialty.  It also means you’re less tired due to less Nitrogen loading for a given dive profile.

Very often liveaboards insist on this certification.  You might as well get ahead of the game.

You’ll be welcomed in a familiar and relaxed atmosphere, by a team of serious professionals who put an accent on leisure and pleasure!

What you can do after certification:

  • Use a mix up to a maximum of 40% Oxygen.


  • To want to do it.
  • 12 years old (permission from parents for miners).
  • PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent.
  • Medical certificate.
