Nitrox Diving in Crete
Nitrox, a word which most divers still associate with Tech Diving, is finding its way into recreational diving. Since 2002 we at “Diver’s Club Crete” have been one of the pioneering diving centers in Crete to lead the evolution of Nitrox in recreational diving.
Diving with Nitrox increases your safety
Welcome to one of the most popular specialties – the Enriched Air Diver course. Diving with Enriched Air Nitrox lets you safely extend your diving time beyond the no decompression limits for air. Diving with enriched air means safety and more time underwater. Nitrox is a gas in which the percentage of oxygen is higher than in normal air. Therefore Nitrox significantly reduces the nitrogen saturation during a dive.
The EANx Diver course is designed to qualify recreational divers to use enriched air for no deco-stop recreational diving. The program addresses the use of enriched air with 22% percent to 40% oxygen, with emphasis on enriched air with 32% and 36% oxygen.
The EANx Diver course emphasizes the theoretical and practical practice associated with enriched air diving. Besides the theoretical lessons and the written exams, the Nitrox course includes training in gases analysis and in Nitrox cylinder identification and marking!
To qualify for the Enriched Air Diver course, a diver must:
- Be certified as an Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification from another recognized training organization.
- Be 12 years of age or older.
The Nitrox course is a theoretical course which can be done by eLearning, from your computer or mobile device (smartphone or tablet) and can be done even before your arrival at our dive center.
