Enriched Air Nitrox $250
Diving enriched air lets you safely extend your no decompression limits, which means more time underwater and shorter surface intervals - so you can get back in the water sooner!!
The most common misconceptions about Nitrox is that it is for divers wanting to go deeper and that you need special equipment. However, nitrox is most beneficial at depths of 5 to 30m with NO special equipment required.A short course is all that is required to begin using nitrox immediately.
New Zealand standards require the diver to complete two dives using nitrox prior to certification. These can be completed without your instructor as but your instructor wil need to see proof these dives have been completed.
