All our Technical scuba diving courses and Tec diving specialties.
Below are listed all our tec diving courses, but before to jump to the scuba diving "dark side", you can give it a try!
You can dive fully geared with a technical diving gear on our special "Discover Tec" or "Intro to Tec Diving" programs, because after all, you do not know if you will like to become a technical diver.
Technical diving is not "hard," like many scuba divers thought, as a matter of fact having twin tanks on your back or side-mounted will put yourself in a safer position (horizontal) more naturally than a single tank.
But most important you will have an exceptional knowledge of diving, physiology, and physics than anyone else in the recreational diving domain won't have.
A tec diver does dive its dive tables. During a technical diving course, you will learn to do your decompression tables as you will be able to do decompression dives. As a matter of fact, a tech diver does not need a diving computer, just a bottom timer.
Overall tec diving allows you to go deeper, for example to visit a wreck at 80 meters (260 feet), and stay longer like 2 or 3 hours underwater if you want.
But your technical knowledge can be applied to your recreational diving like staying one hour at just 20 meters (100 feet) if you wish.
Does a tec diver need to carry all those tanks (cylinders)?
Yes, a tec diver carries many tanks (cylinders) underwater and no, underwater it's not heavy at all!
You can swim fast too. During a technical diving course, you will learn some unique propulsion skills and will understand how easy it is to move and carry many tanks (cylinders) even again a high current.
On a classic, basic and no hypoxic configuration a tec diver have a set of twin tanks (cylinders) at the back and 1 to 2 sling tanks (cylinders) on the left side, familiaryly called deco (for decompression) tanks.
The back gas (twin tanks) is the bottom gas, the gas or mixed gas you use for your dive. In the deco tanks it's usually a 50 percent nitrox's tank and an O2 (100% oxygen) tank used to accelerate the decompression time which can be cut to more than 50 percent.
For example if your decompression time using air as a deco gas, is 1 hour, with the 50% nitrox and the O2 gases it can become as short as 25 to 30 minutes of decompression time only.
