Scuba Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox with Aussie Divers Patong Phuket Thailand

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba diving course, and it’s not hard to see why. Scuba diving with enriched air nitrox gives you longer no decompression dive time. This allows you to spend more time underwater, especially on multiple dive days.

Enriched Air is now available on nearly all scuba diving day trip and liveaboard boats in the Phuket, Thailand region. It is almost becoming a must for any serious scuba diver.

The theory is completed in the Aussie Divers Phuket classroom which only takes a few hours and you can then take to option to do a day trip or liveaboard adventure to use nitrox whilst scuba diving.

It is also the only PADI Specialty that you can combine with another course such as your PADI Advanced Open Water Course, PADI Wreck Specialty and PADI Deep Specialty.

The Fun Part

You can typically stay down longer and get back the water sooner. No wonder many divers choose this as their very first specialty.

What You Learn

How to get longer bottom time safely whilst using eriched air nitrox
Equipment considerations when using enriched air for scuba diving
How to safely manage oxygen exposure and how to set your dive computer correctly for nitrox

Your Next Adventure

Diving with enriched air nitrox benefits all types of diving, but it goes especially well with these specialties:

PADI Wreck Diver course – Popular wrecks tend to be deeper, so enriched air nitrox maximizes your exploration time.

PADI Deep Diver course – The deeper you dive, the shorter your no stop time – but enriched air nitrox increases it, giving your more time at depth

PADI Digital Underwater Photographer – Photographers usually like to make several dives so they can get lots of pictures. Enriched air nitrox reduces the amount of residual nitrogen you accumulate, allowing repetitive dives to be longer.

PADI Master Scuba Diver: The PADI Enriched Air Diver course counts toward your Master Scuba Diver rating – the highest non professional rating in recreational diving.

The reason for this is not for the fact that scuba diving requires you to swim, but rather it is for yours and your groups safety. In the unlikely event that your BCD (Buoyancy Control Device) was to falter then there [...]
