Specialty Nitrox Course
The Enriched Air Nitrox course, or nitrox for short, will teach you how to safely plan and dive with enriched air mixtures of up to 40% oxygen.
Diving on Koh Tao or anywhere the Specialty Nitrox Course can increase your no-decompression limits, reduce the required length of your surface intervals when compared to air and increase your safety.
What Is The Course About?
The enriched air nitrox course is my second or third most suggested course after your open water course on Koh Tao. The other is the advanced course. By adding oxygen and reducing the nitrogen in your tank and thereby reducing the nitrogen load in your body, you gain longer diving times.
If you are doing many dives over a short period such as a holiday or a liveaboard a lower nitrogen load is especially desirable. But there are limitations on depth.
Once you have paid the deposit you can read all the theories in advance using the MySSI app on your way to Koh Tao. Once at Mojo Divers we will go through the theory with you again to make sure you understand everything.
You will learn to use and analyze enriched air as a breathing gas, to plan your dive and dive your plan with nitrox, and understand how nitrox affects you beneath the surface.
