PADI’s most popular specialty scuba course!
Enriched air, also known as nitrox or EANx, contains less nitrogen than regular air. Breathing less nitrogen means you can enjoy longer bottom times on your dives and shorter surface intervals between dives.
Once you have this PADI certification, you can use Enriched Air on your dives all over the world!
No wonder Enriched Air Diver is the most popular PADI® specialty.
What is Enriched Air Nitrox?
On most dives you breathe air, which consists of roughly 79% nitrogen. It is the nitrogen that limits your bottom time when diving, especially on deeper dives.
Enriched air contains a higher percentage of oxygen, which means less nitrogen. Depending on the depth of your dive, this can increase you no stop limit by up to 50%!
In addition, taking in less nitrogen means you can have a shorter surface interval between dives and still have enough no stop time to enjoy multiple dives in a day.
Why use Nitrox?
- Stay at depth longer
- Enjoy shorter surface intervals
- Obtain Enriched Air on dives worldwide
- Dive with more conservative profiles

Can’t say enough about Dive Maui. I took the two day open water cert. The instructor is an exceptional teacher, a total pro and fun to be with. I will definitely be back and recommend Dive Maui to anyone who wants a top tier dive outfit.
Did my PADI certification with Dive Maui. Super professional, thorough, attentive and supportive. A great time too!!
We had a fantastic experience getting PADI certified at Dive Maui. Very glad that we found Dive Maui! Diving was the highlight of our trip and the exercises and learning that were a part of getting certified were fun while being informative.
Excellent diving experience. Did OW certification shore dives. Saw numerous turtles, some sharks, and many other fish and crustaceans. Small, but top notch operation
Great operation, total professionals, but relaxed. I spent 2 days getting my open water cert. My instructor was awesome and made me feel relaxed. The teaching style is perfect. I would recommend Dive Maui and I will be back.
