PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Diver: February 11 – FULL

February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Nitrox

The PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Diver is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba diving course, and it’s easy to see why. Scuba diving with enriched air gives you more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives. You can typically stay down longer and get back in the water sooner since you’ll require shorter surface intervals. No wonder many divers choose this as their very first specialty. Class will be held at the shop.
