Nitrox Enriched Air
Take the first step into technical diving and increase your bottom time! NITROX stands for "Nitrogen Enriched Oxygen". This enriched air replaces some of the nitrogen you breathe underwater with oxygen, so that during a dive you absorb less nitrogen than you would when breathing normal air. This gives you longer no-decompression limits and you can dive longer than you could using air.

Master Scuba Diver
Achieve the highest ranking recreational diver level that PADI has to offer.
Prerequisites for certification are Advanced Open Water qualification with Rescue Diver Certification and 5 specialties, plus proof of 60 logged dives. All available through Lotus Diving.
