PADI Enriched Air

The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is by far our most popular PADI Diver specialist course. It allows you to dive with enriched air blends of up to 40% O2 rather than just standard air.  

With this you get more time underwater exploring and enjoying your dive.  This happens because enriched air extends your no decompression limits.  We highly recommend this speciality for warm water diving, so if you are going abroad and want to maximise your underwater adventure then this is the course for you.

Let’s look at the maths:  If you dive to 15 metres, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes on normal air; however diving on EANx36 gets you 220 minutes of no decompression time – an increase of 140 minutes, who wouldn’t want to do that?  

Enriched air is readily available from most reputable dive centres around the world (you should always check though before booking) so you can enjoy the benefits of enriched air while you holiday. 

Course Prerequisites:

PADI Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organisation)

Minimum age is 12 years old (so perfect for families of all ages)

What will I need?

You’ll need your PADI Enriched eLearning access code which you get by contacting the office.

Once you have your eLearning code & you have registered with PADI to do the course you slowly study the online material and complete the exam. Once you have completed this you will visit the Hub and complete a practical session.

There is a practical assessment that follows at the end of the session where we show you how to check the contents of a cylinder with various modern testers before we get you to test a few different blends.

There is no diving to do to get this speciality it is all land based & only takes 3-4 hours at the Hub to complete.
