PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course Midweek
New Years Resolution? Nitrox. Join us as we kick it old-school with a more informative and fun live midweek PADI Enriched Air Nitrox Course Tuesday and Thursday Evenings 6:00-10pm at DDS with Cave & Technical Diving Explorer Matt Mandziuk
What will you learn?
Enriched Air Nitrox is the most interesting academic diving course with a greater understanding of what’s happening to your body: decompression theory, gas laws, physiology, dive planning, managing oxygen exposure and so much more.
Nitrox is a great course for divers who want to learn more about dive science and benefit from a more efficient breathing medium that allows more bottom time, allowing divers to see more, dive more and do more dives per day with shorter surface intervals.
Minimum age is 12 years, however, we feel 15 years of age is more suited to the scope of the academics, unless doing a simplified computer based nitrox course.
Take this course as part of your Open Water course or your Advanced Open Water Course.
Nitrox is the most popular dive specialty available now on the market. Divers looking to advanced their diving to a more skill and theory oriented style of diving can use Nitrox as a stepping stone towards deeper, more advanced, technical, cave diving applications, as well as rebreather diving.
Diving Nitrox Allows Divers to:
- Do more dives per day
- Reduce Nitrogen Uptake by reducing the risk of Decompression Illness. By giving your body much needed oxygen to supply tissue/oxygen demands if diving nitrox as air, you on-gass less N2 and increase safety reducing the risk of DCS by up to 46%.
- More Bottom Time increasing NO Stop dive limits. * For Example Diving an EAN40 (40% Oxygen/60% Nitrogen) gives a diver 240 min’s of No Decompression time at 60fsw vs. 60ft for 55min’s on regular air diving tables.
- Reduce Post Dive Fatigue. No more feeling burned out after air dives. Nitrox will make you feel better and more awake after dives.
At Dan’s we teach the Highest Quality Nitrox Course around. No one has as much experience in the field of mixed gas and technical diving than Dan’s, so learn from the best.
Our facility has been the top nitrox and technical dive training facility since the 1990’s. If you want the most thorough Nitrox training course, ours is the one you’ll want.
Cost: $199.95 includes book and certification card or eLearning code. call store for more specifics.

Dive Newfoundland Bell Island Shipwrecks, Humpback Whales, Bell Island Mine and more!
Join us as we dive Newfoundland and the majestic Bell Island Shipwrecks, historic Bell Island Mine, with options to Snorkel with migrant Humpback Whales, the potential is always there to see Icebergs if they’re still afloat and of course to tour this beautiful area and that has many beautiful topside attractions and Eastern Canadian landscape that you will fall in love with. Join the most amazing and memorable trip and see why we love Newfoundland so much.
Newfoundland is home to some impressive WWII shipwrecks that were sank by German U-Boat’s. These time capsules feature some beautiful and colourful soft corals, while many of the original artifacts still are found throughout the wrecks for all to see while simultaneously boasting a lot of great history. Take advantage while you’re there and lets get you up close and personal with Humpback Whales, Dolphins and more!
DDS was so impressed with Newfoundland that we have booked it again! Join us for a phenomenal week of diving with our friends at Ocean Quest Adventures as we dive some of the world’s best preserved wrecks. With five* days of diving, you’ll discover the secrets of all four of the famous Bell Island shipwrecks. Intact and upright on the bottom, over 400 ft long, and in virtually the same conditions as the day they were sunk by German U-boats in 1942, these wrecks are sure to have you coming back again.
Along with exploring the shipwrecks, this tour features seven nights’ accommodations, five days of diving (two dives a day), and includes tanks (2 x 80 cuft alum), air, on-boat lunches on dive days, and complimentary airport shuttle service. However, nitrox and equipment rentals are extra.
*There is a 5th day of humpback whale activities and hiking available instead of diving if you’d like to upgrade. We have additional upgrades available.
We may even have the option of exploring the Bell Island Mine again this year! Must be fully certified NAUI Cave 2 Level Divers. Check out the photos in the gallery from this epic dive trip!
We can honestly say this experience has been one of the best diving trips of our lives. There’s a reason we keep going back and it’s partly because Rick and his staff continue to out do what they’ve done each previous year. When you dive Newfoundland you realize that this place is special and the diving is some of the best in the world. It’s worth every penny of the cost and then some.
Opportunities to dive Empress of Ireland on the way home are available this year as well for those driving through Quebec on the way home.
