Tec Rec

PADI Technical Dive Courses  tecbanner



Technical diving is diving's "extreme sport", taking experienced divers far deeper than in recreational diving. You want to go deeper than 40 metres? Building in extended decompression stops? Diving in an overhead environment? Using variable gases in one dive? You need to go tec, and to go tec you need the training.
