NITROX DIVE TOUR
This tour is specifically geared toward newly certified as well as experienced divers who are not Nitrox Certified but who would like to try it. Nitrox is basically air with a higher percentage oxygen. The benefit? Nitrox helps to reduce nitrogen build up in the blood and thus reduces a diver’s chance of getting decompression sickness allowing divers to dive longer while feeling vibrant instead of exhausted after successive dives. Although this is not a certification course, it is a great way for you to try scuba diving with nitrox. If you decide you’d like to get certified in nitrox, the two dives you do with can count as your required dives on nitrox. Not to mention, we’ll even deduct the tour fee from the cost of your nitrox certification.
How Long is the Tour?
Plan on spending roughly 4 hours for your trip. This includes being picked up, travelling to the destination, boarding the boat, the dive briefing, putting on gear, diving, the debriefing, taking off the gear, and next being transported back to our shop or to your hotel. For the dives themselves, you have the option of either choosing to dive from 8:00 A.M to 11:00 A.M. or from 11:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. The morning dive includes one deep dive down to the infamous Sea Tiger shipwreck followed by a ’40 reef dive. Our after noon dives consist of two shallow reef dives with one being at the notorious Turtle Canyon, famous for its conglomeration of Sea Turtles.
