Nitrox on Lord Howe Island!

We are pleased to announce that we have just purchased a Nuvair Voyager I Nitrox System!

Divers can now complete their Nitrox Certification training during their visit and enjoy all the spectacular diving Lord Howe offers with longer bottom times.

We will also continue to operate our 7am dives for advanced divers looking to do Exploratory Diving on a virgin relic barrier reef on the outer shelf that surrounds the island. Most of the 149.9 square kilometres of structure has never been dived before and with an average depth of 30M, Nitrox was the next logical step.

We would like to thank our friends from Pro Diving Services who we purchased the system from. Not only did they source it for us quickly from the USA and have it on display at OzTek in Sydney last weekend, they also provide ongoing support and training on the system for the life of the compressor. The Voyager I is a medium sized Nitrox system that allows you to use either air or Nitrox (with 40% Nitrox capability). It’s one of the “workhorse” Nitrox compressors in the industry, fitted with high quality filtrate, dual O2 analysers, a CO2 scrubber and a CO2 analyser.

The system should be online and functioning by the end of April 2017 and will work in conjunction with our existing Nuvair HP compressor. It will also give us a bonus redundancy factor and allows us to double our air filling capacity.

Dive somewhere new this year with Pro Dive Lord Howe Island!
