The Best way to Dive Recreationally – Nitrox Scuba Diver Course
The Nitrox Scuba Diver Course is the Gateway to truly one of the best ways to dive recreationally.
Nitrox is a mixture of Nitrogen and Oxygen, where a higher percentage of Oxygen is put into the mix.
Therefore there is less Nitrogen and then less probability of having to deal with it’s repercussions such as, Decompression Sickness and Nitrogen Narcosis.
The SSI Enriched Air Nitrox program will teach you how to safely plan and dive with enriched air mixtures of up to 40% oxygen. Diving with enriched air can increase your no-decompression limits, increase your safety, and reduce the required length of your surface intervals when compared to air. You will earn the SSI Enriched Air Nitrox 32% or 40% certification after completing this program.
