About the Nitrox Course: Enriched Air (also known as Nitrox) is a Nitrogen/Oxygen mix that has a greater percentage of oxygen and a lesser percentage of nitrogen in it than normal air. This means safer diving and potentially longer bottom times due to reduced Nitrogen absorption, this is ideal for multiple day diving.
The Great Barrier Reef: Its ecosystem supports the greatest concentration of life on this planet including 1500 species of fish, 350 different kinds of coral, 4,000 species of molluscs and 10,000 species of sponges.
