PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Course

PADI Enriched Air (Nitrox) Course.
Add the Enriched Air option and save $60! Scuba diving with enriched air (Nitrox) gives you more no decompression time, especially on repetitive scuba dives. If staying down longer and getting back in the water sooner sounds appealing, then don't hesitate to take up the enriched air diver option.

This course includes:

  • Enriched Air online eLearning theory
  • Theory and practical lessons
  • 2 Nitrox training dives run in conjunction with your Advanced Open Water course
  • Enriched air tank and Nitrox fills for the enriched air dives

Although this is a PADI Advanced Open Water course the standard Abyss Scuba Diving PADI Advanced Open Water course has a number of advantages over the budget course. 

Boat Dives, the standard course includes 2 boat dives (valued at $110 ) which are normally with the grey nurse sharks at Magic Point. Not only do you learn how to dive off a boat but you get a chance to dive with grey nurse sharks.

Lunch A light lunch is not provided during the Budget course and the Participants must provide their own lunch on each day whereas those on the standard course have a light lunch supplied. 

Weekend Options. The standard course has course runs with both weekend and weekday options, the budget course only runs Wednesday-Thursday.

For people who see diving as a lifelong pursuit, we recommend upgrading to one of our standard courses.
