At Red Sail Sports we have our very own Nitrox Compressor, making diving with Nitrox more accessible than ever!
Our Nitrox tanks are blended to approximately 32% - giving you the optimum mix for our planned dives.
When diving with air on our 2 tank Wall dives, the first dive is guided down to 100 feet for up to 35 minutes, and the second dive is to 50-60 feet for up to 50 minutes. If you dive with Nitrox however, you can extend your bottom time to 45 minutes at 100 feet and up to 1 hour at 50-60 feet!
Nitrox tanks are available for $15 per tank.
If you have booked a dive package or you take a Nitrox certification course with us you can then take advantage of our Nitrox package rates and extend your bottom time for less!
A nitrox package is a minimum of 6 tanks at just US$60.00 – saving you 33%!
5 Reasons YOU should be diving with Nitrox!
Longer bottom times - Stay down longer than if diving on normal air. When diving Nitrox we breathe a higher percentage of Oxygen so absorb less nitrogen.
Shorter surface intervals - because you absorb less nitrogen during the dive you this means you can jump back in the water sooner!
Longer repetitive dives - diving with a higher oxygen mix means that your second dive can be longer than if diving with air.
Feeling 'less tired' - many people report they feel much less tired after diving with nitrox compared with air. This could be down to the reduced amount of nitrogen that your body has absorbed, therefor having less work to 'off gas' later on.
Safer profile if dived as air - many people use nitrox to just dive it as an air profile. This adds an extra level of conservatism to your diving. Something that 'divers of a certain age' may feel the benefit from!
