A Good Reason To Do Your PADI Enriched Air Diver Course
When you do your PADI Deep Diver Speciality course, you will learn about NDLs and how at deeper depths you have shorter No Decompression Limits. However, if you are a Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver, your NDLs at deeper depths are not as short as compared to when you are diving with only air. So this course would be a good reason to enter into the longer NDL dives!
