Havana.- The International Diving Center in Cayo Levisa, in western Pinar del Río province, hosted a qualification course to train divers in the use of nitrox.

According to experts, the use of nitrox in aqualungs allows prolonging the immersion period and reduces the time span between diving and taking a plane.

Andrew Mathews, president of the International Association Nitrox Technical Dive (IANTD), an organization based in Mexico City, certified the course.

Cayo Levisa is the first diving site in Cuba to employ divers trained in the correct use of that substance, thus guaranteeing divers’ absolute safety.

The use of nitrox will be expanded to diving centers, such as Maria La Gorda, also in Pinar del Río; Varadero, Cuba’s major beach resort, Playa Giron and Santa Lucía, the latter in eastern Camagüey province.

The course was attended by 14 diving instructors from the chains Cubanacán S.A. and Horizontes Hoteles.
