Scuba Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx)


Diving with enriched air nitrox lets you safely extend your no stop time beyond the no decompression limits for air. Diving with enriched air means more time underwater Ė but you need to be certified as an Enriched Air Diver to get enriched air fills.

Whether youíre into underwater photography or wreck diving, on vacation in some tropical paradise or just out for a leisurely day of diving at your local Pacific North West dive site, the PADI Enriched Air Diver course helps you get more out of diving by giving you more time underwater.  During this class you will learn how to properly analyze Nitrox fills, plan enriched air dives with special tables, track your daily oxygen loading, and learn how to protect yourself from Oxygen Toxicity.
