Technical Diving: PADI Discover Tec diving is made to try technical diving.
With the PADI discover tec, you will try and discover the technical side of scuba diving. Suit up with our tec diving gears and take it to the test.
This is not a course, but more or less an intro to technical diving!
We will show you the tec gear, you will try it and dive with it (and us).
At the end you will feel what a tec diver can feel and why they love tec diving.
After your Discover Tec, if you like to continue your journey to the "dark side" it will be easy, other wise if you didn't liked to dive like a Tec Diver, you have at least tried to say "no" to the technical diving.
