Nitrox Dive Course

Enriched air, also known as nitrox or EANx, contains less nitrogen than regular air. Breathing less nitrogen means you can enjoy longer dives and shorter surface intervals.

This operation is in a class of it’s own. Clive and Michelle cater for your every need. Dives were fantastic. Everything is neat and well maintained. If you want to dive out of the crowd I would definitely recommend you try Mokarran.
