Nitrox Certification

What is Nitrox?

Nitrox is a mix of Nitrogen and Oxygen gas with a higher concentration of
Oxygen than standard air. Contrary to popular belief nitrox does not let
you dive deeper. It is designed to let the diver stay longer at depth,
maintain shorter surface intervals, and create a larger safety factor than
standard air.

Who should take this course?

All SCUBA divers benefit from diving with Nitrox, not just advanced divers.
If you are planning on multiple dives in one day or diving multiple days,
Nitrox will be a benefit. Most people also say they feel better and more
energized after diving on Nitrox too.


At Finz Dive Center, we offer Nitrox certification courses with top-rated instructors.

Why become a Nitrox Certified diver?

Becoming Nitrox certified opens up a world of benefits for divers like you:

  • Extended Dive Time: Nitrox, a blend of oxygen and nitrogen, allows for longer bottom times compared to regular air. Enjoy extended dives and more time to explore underwater wonders.
  • Quicker Surface Intervals: With reduced nitrogen absorption, Nitrox divers experience shorter surface intervals. Dive more frequently and make the most of your time beneath the waves.
  • Less Fatigue: Nitrox can reduce post-dive fatigue, making your underwater adventures more enjoyable. Feel energized and ready for the next dive.
  • Safety Enhancement: Nitrox reduces the risk of decompression sickness, enhancing your overall dive safety. It’s a valuable certification for those prioritizing well-being during underwater excursions
  • Ideal for Multiple Dives: If you love doing multiple dives in a day, Nitrox is your ally. Its benefits become even more evident during repetitive dives, allowing for a more relaxed and enjoyable experience.
  • Suitable for All Divers: Nitrox is not just for advanced divers; divers of all levels can benefit from Nitrox certification. It’s a simple and valuable addition to your skill set.
