When one tank is not enough... to explore new limits...
Technical (tec) diving means going beyond recreational scuba diving limits. There are many spectacular, untouched wrecks that lie at depths well below 40 metres and deep reefs have organisms you don’t find in the shallows. Some people enjoy the challenge and the focus tec diving requires, while others love being involved with cutting edge technologies. So, tec diving is really about the challenge and adventure of exploring places that no one else has ever seen, which makes it extremely rewarding.
Tec diving does require significantly more effort, discipline and equipment, so not for everyone, but it does attract experienced divers who want to go beyond their current limits and are willing to accept the added risks, training, investment and commitment it demands... Is tec diving for you?...
...going beyond recreational scuba diving limits:
Diving beyond 40 metres/130 feet
Required stage decompression
Diving in an overhead environment beyond 40 linear metres/130 linear feet of the surface
Accelerated decompression and/or the use of variable gas mixtures during the dive
Use of extensive equipment and technologies
