Nitrox Course (Feb 15th – Lynnwood)
Breathing Oxygen-enriched air (Nitrox) on your dives gives you the advantages over regular air of diving longer, and doing shorter surface intervals. Nitrox is the breathing gas of choice for dive travel, allowing more dives per day, letting you maximize your travel dollar. Nitrox is available at Lighthouse, and around the world at all major diving destinations. Nitrox can also be used to greatly lessen your susceptibility to decompression sickness (the bends). This upgrade includes an academic session, and diving Nitrox on 2 of your open water dives.

Your instructor will teach you about the physiology of oxygen and nitrogen; advantages, disadvantages, and risks of nitrox; oxygen toxicity; hazards and precautions of handling oxygen; the concept of Equivalent Air Depth; use of EANx with standard Air Dive Tables; common gas mixing procedures; and more.
