Crete Nitrox Diving

Diving with Nitrox in Crete

Nitrox, a word which most divers still associate with Tech Diving, is finding its way into recreational diving. Since 2002 we at "Crete Diver's Club" have been one the pioneering diving centers in Crete to lead the evolution of  Nitrox in recreational diving.

Diving with Nitrox increases your safety

diving with nitroxDiving with Nitrox has nothing to do with deep diving. It is a gas in which the percentage of oxygen is higher than in air.

Therefore Nitrox significantly reduces the nitrogen saturation during a dive. Because of that, it increases the safety and furthermore the use of Nitrox allows longer bottom times.

For the safe use of NITROX you have to enroll in a course. As a certified diver you can take your Nitrox diver qualification at "Divers Club Crete" in a short time. EANx32 and EANx36 tanks are ready for use at any time.

Nitrox courses are available from PADI and IANTD.



Welcome to one of PADI’s most popular specialties – the PADI Enriched Air Diver course. Diving with enriched air nitrox lets you safely extend your no stop time beyond the no decompression limits for air. Diving with enriched air means safety and more time underwater.

To qualify for the PADI Enriched Air Diver course, a diver must:

1. Be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification
from another training organization.
2. Be 15 years of age or older.

The PADI EANx Diver course is designed to qualify recreational divers to use enriched air (“nitrox”) for no stop recreational diving. The program addresses the use of enriched air with 22 percent to 40 percent oxygen, with emphasis on enriched air with 32 and 36 percent oxygen.

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course emphasizes the theoretical and operational considerations involved with enriched air diving. Mastery of the learning objectives is demonstrated during knowledge development assessment, practical application sessions and 2 open water dives.

Training dives may be conducted at night for divers who have completed the Night Adventure Dive or the first dive of the PADI Night Diver specialty course, or have any other night diving qualification (at least four dives in total) experience.
