You’re on one of the best dives you have ever had, around every corner you look there is something you have never seen before, then your buddy signals to you, it’s time to go up, you still have lots of gas in your tanks but, your bottom time is running low. If this sounds familiar to you, then it’s time to get your EAN certification. You have to be an open water diver of at least 12 years of age and you can start today with the PADI e-Learning. Once you arrive your PADI Instructor will go through the analyzing and planning of a Nitrox dive and then you can jump right in and enjoy your extra bottom time.

You will learn;
• why diving with higher levels of oxygen gives you more bottom time
• the dangers of diving with higher levels of oxygen
• equipment consideration
• analyzing the oxygen content of a scuba cylinder
• setting your dive computer and planning a Nitrox dive
