Enriched Air/Nitrox                                                                       $195.00

By far the most popular specialty offered by PADI! Why? One reason: more bottom time!!  After a few dives,  new SCUBA divers become more comfortable about being underwater and consume less air.  Experienced divers need to be aware of table times and no decompression limits. Diving with Enriched Air/Nitrox gas blends allows for longer no decompression limits for a similar depth dive conducted on "normal" compressed air.  This course teaches the diver proper techniques and application for the use of nitrogen/oxygen mixes that differ from regular air.  This course can be combined with other PADI courses for a reduced course package price.
