Nitrox Diving In Mauritius

Appreciate the beauty of the underwater world by diving deeper and staying longer in the ocean with the Nitrox Diving Course in Mauritius!

Indeed, it is possible to take the Nitrox Diving Course to make your vacation more adventurous and fun. With this type of diving course you will safely extend your ‘No-Decompression Limits’ (NDL), and have the advantage of spending more time at the bottom of the ocean, especially on repetitive scuba dives. There is nothing as amazing as extending your stay in the deep water where you will have the chance to cherish the vibrant marine ecosystem of the South Indian Ocean.

About The Nitrox Diving Course In Mauritius

The Nitrox course is especially designed for enthusiastic divers willing to expand their knowledge and abilities. Nitrox is an abbreviation for Nitrogen-Oxygen which is the primary content of the air we breathe every day. For recreational diving purposes, the term Enriched Air Nitrox or EANx is a breathing gas blend with a higher percentage of oxygen than the usual air we breathe.

Nitrox Diving Course In Mauritius

Divers prefer to use Nitrox for a variety of reasons. One of the primary reasons is because it gives you the ability to stay in deeper waters for longer, due to the higher no-decompression limits. The number of dives you wish to do, depend on the amount of nitrogen that is absorbed, and this dictates your time underwater or no-decompression limit (NDL). As you dive deeper and in some cases for longer, your body will absorb more nitrogen. The no-decompression limit will correlate to how much nitrogen your body can safely absorb before you have to perform mandatory decompression stops.

This Nitrox Diving course consists of a theory session (on an electronic tablet) in the diving center, followed by 2 diving sessions in the sea.

You will learn how to plan the dive and prepare the required equipment including; managing oxygen exposure, how to analyse the content in your tank, gear markings, tank filling, and so on. This is a continuous course available for PADI Open Water level holders or equivalent: (CMAS 1 Star, SSI Open water).
