What is Tec diving?

Technical diving is way of diving that goes beyond recreational scuba diving limits. Tec diving is not for everyone, but it allows experienced divers to challenge and explore places that no one else has ever seen.

Technical diving includes diving beyond 40metres/130 feet, stage decompression and accelerated decompression and/or the use of variable gas mixtures during the dive and use of extensive equipment and technologies.

From Discover Tec to Tec 50, the courses follow a progressive, logical, step-by-step path that will bring you from recreational diver to a fully certified technical diver who will be craving for your next extreme adventure. Your skill training will start in our 4 metre deep purpose-built pool and then our house-reef in Sanur. You’ll go deep at the USAT Liberty Shipwreck in Tulamben where you will get the chance to explore an amazing World War II Shipwreck at depth.

PADI Discover Tec

This is a one-day introductory program where you’ll have a chance to try out the gear and double tanks in our 4m-deep pool. You’ll see how it feels, practice buoyancy skills and learn about the planning and organisation that is so important for technical diving. At the end of your program your Instructor will counsel you about the best route for you if you feel you’re ready to take the next step into your technical diving journey.

With full tec gear you’ll do proper weight checks, practice neutral buoyancy skills, learn how to deal with a free-flowing regulator and manifold leak, and practice sharing air with the tec long hose. You’ll get your first hands-on practice with a deco tank, practice gas switch and gas shut-down, deploy a lift bag, and work out your SAC (surface air consumption used to calculate your air usage). We’ll provide all the technical diving equipment and you’ll be amazed how different it feels to basic lightweight scuba gear.

PADI Tec 40 Course

This course takes 3 days, providing you have fully completed the self study prior. It’s your first step into the exciting world of technical diving.
