TDI Understanding Nitrox

TDI Understanding Nitrox

You drop into the crystal clear waters, decend to 16 metres, and begin to float along letting the beautiful reef float past. In what seems no time at all, you check your computer and realise you have no bottom time remaining, but still have air in your tank! What can you do ??

Why TDI Understanding Nitrox?

As you will know from your entry-level diver course, we are limited, due to the amount of nitrogen we absorb during a dive, as to the length of time we can remain at any given depth. If we reduce that amount of nitrogen and replace it with safe levels of oxygen, we are able to increase our bottom time. For those of you who are interested in the longer dives enriched air (nitrox) is the what allows you to do those longer dives!
