Nitrox course


We have some specialties to offer but the Nitrox course is the most popular.

Have you ever dreamed of having longer no-decompression limits to take pictures or explore a wreck? Did you ever want to be safer while diving concerning the potential risk of decompression sickness?

Nitrox is the key. Due to the reduced fraction of nitrogen in your breathing gas, your body will have less work and the desaturation times will be reduced.

Enriched Air Nitrox
In your ENRICHED AIR NITROX program you will learn all the necessary rules for planning dives with Nitrox and using Nitrox in a safe way. An important key point in the entire program is analyzing your own tank prior to any Nitrox dive.

"Nitrox for free" is a slogan on our boats. This means that you do not have to pay a surcharge for Nitrox, but all diving operators will want to see a valid Nitrox certificate before you can dive.

ENRICHED AIR NITROX contains optional dives and therefore it is a perfect "Winter Specialty" before your diving holiday starts. This will allow you to go diving immediately and enjoy the advantages of diving with Nitrox.

If you want to learn more about ENRICHED AIR NITROX, you can buy the manual or the DVD even if you don't want to sign up for the course.

Introduction to Nitrox
Nitrox, Your Body and the Underwater World
Your Total Diving System and Nitrox
Planning Your Nitrox Dives

The primary goal of any SSI Specialty course is to teach you important skills in a fun environment. All courses are taught using home study, short academic sessions, and in-water training.
