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.

*Price if purchased in conjunction with course and attended in San Diego through House of Scuba
