The PADI Enriched Air Diver course is PADI’s most popular specialty scuba diving course, and it’s easy to see why. Scuba diving with Enriched Air, commonly called "Nitrox" gives you more no decompression dive time. This means more time underwater, especially on repetitive scuba dives...plus may divers report less fatigue after dives, although that might just be a positive effect of more time diving!
