Combined Enriched Air Diver Specialty

The benefits of diving with Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx) are to increase your dive time with EANx tables, decrease your surface interval, and feel less tired after dives. However you may simply want to increase your safety margin by using EANx on air tables. Completion of the EAD specialty qualifies you to dive upto EANx40.

Q. How much more time can I be underwater?
A. For example, if you dive to 15 metres/50 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes. But, diving on EANx36 gets you 220 minutes of no decompression time - an increase of 140 minutes! It’s perfect for underwater photographers, wreck divers and anyone who wants to stay down longer.

The combined AOWC & EAD specialty comprises of 6 dives over 2 days, usually a weekend.

You can complete your qualifying dives on one of our Red Sea trips.
