Enriched Air Nitrox Certification

Want to Stay Deep, Longer?! Use Nitrox!

Get your EANx certification while you Fun Dive!

There is often a fair amount of confusion that surrounds the Enriched Air Nitrox course. Many people are under the (wrong) assumption that EANx allows a diver to go deeper. In fact the opposite is true as additional oxygen in our breathing gas does create a shallower maximum depth than does traditional air. However a diver would normally reach a No Decompression Limit (NDL) of 20 minutes at 100ft/30m on air but suddenly the NDL becomes 30 minutes on EAN32 and 35 minutes on EAN36. Or how about a NDL of 115 minutes on EAN36 at 60ft/20m versus a NDL of 55 minutes on traditional air. Let’s put this another way – if you dive at 60ft/20m you could possibly expect to reach bottom times in excess of 75 minutes, possibly up to 90 minutes or more for those of us really good on air consumption… but your NDL would only be 55 minutes on air. You essentially just lost possibly 55 minutes of dive time at 60ft/20m because you were not using EAN36. So I ask you, can you afford to not be an EANx Diver?

Typical Enriched Air Nitrox SCUBA Certification Class Schedule

  • Morning 1 ~ 9 am – 1 pm in classroom OR open water divers using EAN32
  • Lunch ~ 1 pm – 2:15 pm
  • Afternoon ~ 2:30 – 7 pm open water dives using EAN32 OR in classroom

We offer two options for this continuing education – one with dives using EAN32 and one without dives. Naturally, we recommend the option that includes dives with EAN32. Of the two choices it is the more comprehensive, hands-on educational experience.
