Project Description

We are Boston’s premiere diving education center for Nitrox and other scuba lessons in Massachusetts and New England!

About The Course:

Nitrox is a mix of Oxygen and Nitrogen that is different than what is in air. Typically the difference is that there is more Oxygen in the Nitrox that divers use resulting in less Nitrogen. As certified divers know, Nitrogen is responsible for decompression sickness and limiting the amount in the gas we breath can result in SIGNIFICANTLY more time underwater for each dive.

NITROX GIVES DIVERS MORE TIME UNDERWATER WITH MINIMAL TIME OR FINANCIAL COMMITMENT!

Our Nitrox Course can be completed in one evening and prepares you for any scenario. Nitrox diving is growing in popularity among recreational divers. Come and learn why so many divers are changing their breathing mixtures even for dives to 40 ft. Take your Nitrox course from the first store to teach Nitrox in Massachusetts.
