Woman with 2 nitrox tanks checking the oxygen content


Fish 'n Fins is thrilled to offer our nitrox certified divers Nitrox 32% in a 12 liter tank, completely free of charge.

For those not in the know, nitrox is a type of breathing gas that contains more oxygen and less nitrogen than regular air. This makes it an excellent choice for divers looking to extend their bottom time and reduce the risk of decompression sickness. By using nitrox, divers can stay submerged for longer periods of time without worrying about the negative effects of nitrogen absorption.

And at Fish 'n Fins, we're making it easier than ever to take advantage of the benefits of nitrox. Our 12 liter tanks are available at no additional cost to all certified nitrox divers. And for those looking for an even longer dive, we also offer 15 liter nitrox tanks at an additional charge.

For those not Nitrox certified who wish to experience the thrill of diving with nitrox. As Palau's premier PADI 5 Star IDC Center, we are offering Enriched Air Nitrox.
