Scuba Q&A: How Dangerous Is Technical Diving?


The aim of technical diving is to mitigate foreseeable risks through more advanced training, suitable equipment, increased diver proficiency, a higher level of knowledge and the development of a risk-averse, cautious, mindset.

In short, the technical diver is exposed to a greater variety, frequency and consequence of risks – but maintains an otherwise very high degree of safety through having anticipated and effectively prepared to deal with them.

If a diver isn’t applying all of the considerations mentioned above, then they aren’t actually technical diving. They would just be diving imprudently – either unaware or uncaring of increased risks. That would be a very dangerous thing.
