Going Wreck Diving with New Nitrox Speciality Instructors

Fresh from our November Instructor Development Course here in Sabah, Malaysia, our newly qualified PADI Instructors and PADI IDC Staff Instructors are back at it, gaining more qualifications.

Yesterday, Richard, Downbelow’s resident PADI Course Director, did the Nitrox Speciality Instructor Course with the keen learners at our PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Having an Enriched Air Nitrox EANx qualification allows divers to spend more time diving, which is why it’s a valuable addition to a every PADI Instructor’s tool bag, and an added benefit on your resume.

Today the crew heads out to the Japanese WWII Wrecks in Usukan Bay, to demonstrate the skills they acquired during the Nitrox Speciality Instructor course.

The Usukan Bay Wrecks in Sabah, Malaysia are 3 Japanese ship wrecks, the Rice Bowl Wreck, the Upside Down Wreck and the Usukan Wreck, lie at varying depths between 25m – 40m.

The wrecks of the 3 Japanese ships that were sunk during World War 2, now thrives with sea life, making divers want to dive longer. That is exactly the reason why Nitrox is perfect for this dive.

We look forward to sharing pictures from their dive.
