More and more divers are realising the immense benefits Nitrox gives them and choose, whenever possible, to dive with Enriched Air Nitrox over standard air. If you are not yet certified, our instructors are runnning Nitrox courses every day (see below) Free Nitrox Coral Sub Tenerife Coral Sub owns one of the only 2 membrane Nitrox compressors in Tenerife. Membrane compressors produce Nitrox by removing Nitrogen from normal air to increase the Oxygen percentage. Although expensive to install, they have the advantage over "Partial Pressure" filling stations, as pure oxygen is not used, making day to day operating safer, easier and cheaper. Partial Pressure filling involves blending pure oxygen with air.
As you would expect from a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre, our Nitrox courses will give you first class and thorough training in all aspects of Nitrox, and is split into 3 sections self study with DVD and manual; classroom theory training with an instructor; 2 Open Water dives to enable practical dive planning on Nitrox. The whole course can be completed over 2 days. Before enroling, you must be at least 15 years of age and be a certified PADI Open Water Diver or equivalent (the PADI Enriched Air Nitrox certification is recognised by all international diver training agencies and dive centres). The price of the course includes all diving and classroom sessions, plus a personal copy of the manual, the DVD and all the dive planning tables. We feel it is important that each student has these materials to refresh their knowledge after the course.
