Nitrox Course

Enriched Air Nitrox is often called for short as Nitrox. It refers to the change of percentage of gas that we breath underwater. Gas in the Nitrox tank has the same composition as gas in the normal air tank but is with different respective percentage for each component. When you dive with Nitrox, the percentage of Nitrogen is reduced, whereas the percentage of Oxygen is increased.
Originally, nitrox is only used by professional divers. Nowadays, more and more recreational divers start to dive with Nitrox.

Because the change of gas composition offers us many advantages :

As a result, it is often proposed during your dive trip and especially in diving cruise when you accumulate successive dives. Nitrox becomes essential when you dive repetitively.
