Even though the diving in Nevis may be considered as “easy diving”, Scuba Safaris offers Nitrox at 32% for those who require it. By diving with enriched air rather than standard air you can extend your no decompression limits. This means more time underwater. For example, if you dive to15 meters/50 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes. time But, diving onEANx36 gets you 220 minutes of no decompression time - an increase of 140 minutes.
Nitrox is offered $15.00/tank or can be purchased with any multiple day discount package. (please see our prices page):
