Nitrox – enriched air diving is a new dimension in recreational diving.
Nitrox is the newest tool to extend the no-decompression time limits given to divers. It replaces some of the nitrogen in the compressed air with oxygen, so you absorb less nitrogen during the dive.
Children should be comfortable in the water, but they don’t have to be super swimmers A beautiful experience along a Red Sea reef.
This makes diving safer within any known limits.
Our courses follow the PADI standards of the enriched air speciality. Tank rental on daily diving packages, wreck diving and live-abroad trips is readily available for certified Nitrox divers.
is an introduction to Nitrox. Allows you to dive with Nitrox with a maximum mix of 32% O2 but in a normal air profile. You are not allowed to extend your bottom time but you will make safer dives.

course, is a full nitrox course. Allows you to dive with nitrox till a maximum of 40% O2 and extend your bottom time.
Courses can be taken even during a Thistlegorm trip; it includes 2 open water dives and theory, which will be covered the night before.
A video will give full explanation then one of the instructors will run all the table specifications and answer any questions. A test will be held before diving, 50 questions with multi-choice answers, will qualify you to dive with Nitrox.
Thistlegorm is one of the best, most recently found, old ships in the warm Red Sea and diving the Thistlegorm by Nitrox takes you to a new dimension.
As the Thistlegorm is already located at 30 metres, depth and time are critical; Nitrox takes the worries away. We can organise ourselves with two dives using 15 lt. Nitrox tanks .
You will be more relaxed and not have to worry about air supply or decompression timing.
