If you increase the amount of oxygen in your tank & thereby decrease the amount of nitrogen then you will be able to increase the length of time you can stay at your maximum depth leaving the opportunity to explore more. An essential dive certification for all serious divers.
Enriched Air Nitrox dive panning requires a few more planning steps than diving on air, & you will have to use several tables to plan decompression & oxygen exposure. Most divers don’t find these steps too complicated, but the process has more potential for error & less tolerance for error if you make one. Remember always plan your dive & dive your plan as is the golden rule!
