Due to the great number of dives that can be accomplished on a live aboard cruise, it is a particularly good place to go Nitrox diving rather than use plain air. Breathing Nitrox will give you an added margin of safety against decompression sickness, while increasing your safe bottom time limits. If you are not already Nitrox certified, a live aboard cruise is a great place to take your scuba diving Nitrox course. The training can be done while the boat is underway, and you'll be able to try Nitrox immediately.
