Nitrox Speciality Course – it’s a matter of time!

If you’re into wreck diving you may have already discovered that diving wrecks generally involves diving closer to your limits. You don’t tend to find great big tankers in 10m of water. If you did there wouldn’t be much point in diving them because most of the wreck would be above the surface! Wrecks tend to be found below 20m that way ships passing above them are not going to run into them.

Because our no decompression time decreases the deeper we go we don’t get to spend much time on the wrecks before we have to come up to avoid going into decompression which would put you at risk of getting the bends.

So for those of you who like to go deep and are fanatical about diving wrecks it can be quite disappointing when you only get to spend 7 minutes exploring the site before you have to head for the surface again.

The solution to this problem is to dive on Nitrox. Nitrox increases the time you can spend at a given depth and so allows you to spend more time in the deeper dive sites so you can really make the most of your dive.

However diving on Nitrox requires special training and no dive centre of filling station will supply you with Nitrox unless you are certified to use it. The Nitrox Speciality course teaches you about diving on Nitrox so that you can safely extend your bottom time and get the most out of your deeper dives.

Divewise is a Nitrox filling station and so we can train you and take you diving on Nitrox. After the course you can do all your dives on Nitrox if you like, like many others choose to do.

So for those of you who like to dive wrecks, dive deep and what to spend more time diving then the Nitrox course is certainly something worth considering.
