Enriched air, also known as nitrox or EANx, contains less nitrogen than regular air. Breathing less nitrogen means you can enjoy longer dives and shorter surface intervals. No wonder Enriched Air Diver is the most popular PADI® specialty.

If you think freediving is just like snorkeling (but going really deep)—think again. Freediving is an entirely different way to experience the underwater world. Freedivers silently blend into the underwater environment. They enjoy magical encounters with shy marine life and hear all the sounds of the ocean: fish munching on coral, the tide pulsing at the rocks, and even the calls of dolphins and whales!   

Freediving is the perfect way to reconnect to the sea and explore the depths of the ocean with minimal impact. Some people freedive for the personal challenge, but for many, the true appeal of freediving is in the silence and calm it brings to their hectic lives.
