The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course is an exhilarating and educational diving program that allows you to expand your diving skills and dive deeper, for longer, and with reduced nitrogen exposure.

The course begins with an introduction to Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx) diving, also known as Nitrox, which is a breathing gas mixture with a higher oxygen content than regular air. You’ll learn about the benefits and considerations of diving with EANx, including extended bottom time, reduced surface intervals, and decreased nitrogen absorption.

Online Learning

Through the interactive eLearning modules, you’ll delve into topics such as gas laws, dive planning, managing oxygen exposure, analyzing gas mixtures, and using specialized dive computers or tables for Nitrox dives. The engaging multimedia content, including videos, quizzes, and interactive simulations, will help you grasp the concepts and apply them effectively during your dives.

Open Water Dives

One of the most exciting aspects of the Enriched Air Nitrox course is the opportunity to conduct actual Nitrox dives. You’ll have the chance to practice analyzing gas mixtures, setting up your equipment for EANx diving, and implementing safety procedures specific to Nitrox dives. Under the guidance of a certified PADI instructor, you’ll explore the underwater world while experiencing the benefits of longer bottom times and shorter surface intervals.

One Nitrox Dive is included in the course. However, many divers chose to combine the PADI Advanced Open Water with the Nitrox Course to get more dives with Enriched Air / Nitrox


Upon successful completion of the PADI Enriched Air Nitrox course, you’ll receive a certification that allows you to dive with EANx mixes up to 40% oxygen. This certification opens up a whole new realm of diving possibilities, including wreck dives, deep dives, and repetitive diving scenarios. You’ll have the confidence and knowledge to fully embrace the advantages of Nitrox diving and enhance your overall diving experience.

Where You Train

Our dive center is a top of the art PADI 5 Star Dive Center. The swimming pool was designed for scuba diving training. The dive center is set directly at the sea side, just walk into the sea to dive on a magnificent coral reef full of marine life.

Typical Day Of Training

You will need about 4 to 5 hours to do the course, with completed eLearning.

Please consider in your planning that you are not allowed to fly for a minimum 18 hours from your last dive. It is recommended to have 1 day to rest before flying back.


Open Water Diver

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving. To avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Download here.
