Palawan Coron Nitrox Dive Specialty Course with Guide, Equipment, Transfers & Lunch
Have an extended underwater time in Coron, Palawan’s islands and shipwrecks in this Nitrox dive specialty course. Perfect for certified divers, this tour is inclusive of three open water dives, a transfer from the dive shop to the boat, the services of an instructor, a course book, the use of an equipment set and tanks, drinks, and complimentary lunch.
After meeting up with your guide at the Skylodge Resort Dive Shop, you will ride a boat to the various Coron islands or shipwrecks for your three open water Nitrox dives. Nitrox, also known as enhanced air nitrox and EANx, is a term used in the scuba community to refer to breathing gas that contains 32–36 percent oxygen. Less nitrogen implies more oxygen, and this has some advantages like extended underwater time, a shorter surface interval in between dives, and deeper dives.
Keep in mind that this specialty course is not for beginners. Once you have measured the mix in your tank with the help of an O2 meter and determined the maximum safe depth at which that mix may be used, you must always remain above that depth. Because this package includes free drinks and food, you can have a break and relax between dives.
