PADI Nitrox

Welcome to one of Discovery Dive World’s most popular specialties – the PADI Enriched Air Diver (Nitrox) course.

Whether you’re into underwater photography or wreck diving, on vacation in some tropical paradise or just out for a leisurely day of diving at your local dive site, the PADI Enriched Air Diver course helps you get more out of diving by giving you more time underwater.
