Enriched Air Nitrox is for technical divers, right?

It’s only worth it if you want to dive deeper for longer, right?

Wrong! Enriched Air Diver course is for every diver! Yes, it does allow you to safely extend your no stop time beyond the no decompression limits for air. However, if you were to make even a short, shallow dive on enriched air you would reap the benefits.

You need to be a certified Enriched Air Diver to get enriched air fills or hire an enriched air tank.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver specialty certifies you to use Enriched Air Nitrox up to a maximum of 40% oxygen. Whilst some divers use the certification as the first step towards Technical Diving, most see it is simply a means to achieve extended no decompression limits and dive for longer, or to end their dive with less nitrogen in their body and to lower their risk of decompression illness.


You’ll learn why diving with air that has higher oxygen and lower nitrogen content gives you more bottom time, along with enriched air equipment considerations. During a practical session you’ll:

  • Discuss managing oxygen exposure.
  • Practice analyzing oxygen content in your scuba tank.
  • Set your dive computer for diving with enriched air nitrox.

At Aquanaut we therefore offer this course with and without the dives, and in conjunction with other courses. Many people choose to do this course in partnership with either their Advanced Open Water or another speciality course, such as the Wreck Diver or Deep Diver.

If you own a dive computer we will also take you through how to set your computer into nitrox mode and to plan nitrox dives.


Prior to the practical session you will have completed the Enriched Air Diver E-Learning.

During the practical session you will learn to analyse the contents of your diving cylinder, marking up a cylinder and the required paperwork, and plan a series of dives using Enriched Air.
