PADI Nitrox Diver
Enriched Air Nitrox

The PADI Nitrox Diver course will teach you the procedures, safety rules, theory and benefits of no-decompression diving on enriched air containing 22% to 40% oxygen. The training will teach you the proper procedures to ensure safety and present the advantages and disadvantages of diving on enriched air.

If you have already reached the limits of your time spent underwater, but would like to extend it further in a safe way, then the Nitrox course is for you. By using enriched air, you can extend your NDL and stay underwater longer. But there are also some disadvantages…. which is why you need to take this course.

Why take the Nitrox course with Costa Rica Divers?

Having skills beyond the usual diving course is called specialization. And it is true that not every dive instructor can teach specialization.

Not only do our staff have the necessary licenses and experience, but our center is the only one in the area with its own training pool and fully equipped base. Your nitrox diver course with us will not only be professional, but above all enjoyable and fun.

But why is our diving course different from other diving schools?

First of all – our price is complete, including all materials, dives, equipment rental for the duration of the course, e-learning package, PADI license fees – in a word everything you need to complete the course. Just come and see for yourself.

What is a nitrox? All about the enriched air

Are you wondering what nitrox is? In this text we will answer the most important question. Is it worth taking a nitrox course?
PADI Specialization Details

The PADI Nitrox Diver is the basic level of training in the use of oxygen-enriched breathing mixtures. Nitrox is nothing but a gas that contains more than 21% oxygen. With this comes a longer bottom time, but also the risk of higher oxygen content in the mixture. The course will prepare you for the safe use of enriched air

Training in the use of oxygen-enriched breathing mixtures is aimed at any diver who has reached the dive time limits set by the dive tables or would like to increase the decompression safety of their dives. You will learn theory and practical analysis of the contents of your diving cylinder. 

During the course, you will also learn about marking your dive cylinder and keeping other divers safe. Using enriched air without prior training or by mistake can be very dangerous. That’s why it’s so important to become a certified PADI Nitrox Diver before attempting any nitrox dive.

This course does not include dives and is a theoretical course the completion of which will result in full PADI Nitrox Diver certification.
