Best Nitrox Scuba Diving Shop in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Turks & Caicos Islands!
We Make it Very Easy! Also, The Most Affordable on Island, “By Far”!
As leader of quality Caribbean scuba diving, Caicos Adventures is the only land-based Caribbean scuba diving agency to operate a Nitrox center with state-of-the-art Nitrox blending equipment.
Our goal is to promote it as much as possible, because it has so much to offer, enhancing both your safety and dive quality. This is why we have made our rates the most attractive both here on Caribbean islands and as compared to other dive destinations. Take advantage of it!
We have invested in a top-of-the-line blending membrane system, which ensures a perfect quality mix, and a larger volume of operation.
Our “wall diving” offers the Enriched Air NITROX diver greater diving options, increasing both depth and time. Starting in only 28 to 45 feet, the wall drops off to 6,000 feet. Enriched Air NITROX is used for sport diving depths of up to 130 feet and provides the added bonus of increased safety when used properly. This means your Caribbean dive will last even longer!
What Is Nitrox?
Nitrox is actually any combination of Nitrogen and Oxygen. Regular breathing air is comprised of approximately 21% Oxygen and 79% Nitrogen. Nitrox mixtures with percentages of oxygen greater than 21% are called Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx).
Why PADI Enriched Air Diver?
Advantages for all divers, including:
Extended bottom times
Shorter surface intervals
Shorter decompression stops
Less post dive fatigue
More dives per day possible
Nitrogen loading declines as per mix
Reduced chance of Decompression Sickness
Reduction in Nitrogen Narcosis
* Enriched Air Nitrox (EAN), when used with standard dive tables or computers, provides a tremendous safety factor. Actual nitrogen accumulation is that of a dive 10-20 feet shallow.
Caribbean scuba diving, with EAN rather than standard air, extends your no decompression limits. This means more time underwater! For example, if you dive to 15 metres/50 feet on air, your no decompression limit is 80 minutes. But, diving on EANx36 gets you 220 minutes of no decompression time – an increase of 140 minutes.

Divers wishing to be more conservative
Divers who are not as young as they once were
Divers who may not be in peak physical fitness
