The benefits of diving with enriched air nitrox (Aqaba)
Dive with Enriched Air Nitrox in Aqaba, Jordan We have Enriched Air Nitrox Aqaba available for every dive. Nitrox refers to any gas mixture composed of nitrogen and oxygen; this includes normal air which is approximately 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% other gases. However, in scuba diving, nitrox is normally differentiated and handled differently from the air. The most common use of nitrox mixtures containing higher than normal levels of oxygen is in scuba, where the reduced percentage of nitrogen is advantageous in reducing nitrogen uptake in the body's tissues and so extending the possible dive time, and/or reducing the risk of decompression sickness (also known as the bends).

Diving with nitrox benefits all types of diving, but it goes especially well with these specialities:
Wreck Diver course – Popular wrecks tend to be deeper, so nitrox maximizes your exploration time.
Deep Diver course – The deeper you dive, the shorter your no-stop time – but nitrox increases it, giving your more time at depth.
PADI Digital Underwater Photographer – Photographers usually like to make several dives so they can get lots of pictures. Nitrox reduces the amount of residual nitrogen you accumulate, allowing repetitive dives to be longer.
