What is Technical Diving?

Technical diving goes beyond recreational diving limits by venturing deeper than the 40m/120ft depth restriction, requiring mandatory decompression stops, and using multiple gas mixtures on a single dive. This high level of diving is associated with more frequent and severe risks that necessitate advanced training, specialized equipment, and a higher level of skill proficiency and experience. Technical diving demands significantly more physical and psychological resilience than recreational diving.

The most commonly accepted definition of technical diving is:

Diving other than conventional commercial, military or scientific diving, that takes divers beyond recreational diving limits.

Why take a technical diving course?

Technical diving breaks through the limitations of recreational diving. Once correctly trained and equipped, you can dramatically extend the depth and time limits of your diving; opening up endless new possibilities for underwater exploration. Technical diving certification opens the door to the rewards of diving on challenging sites that the vast majority of divers are unable to visit.

The challenge of technical diving will also evolve your diving proficiency to an exceptional level. You’ll enjoy unimaginable levels of competency, comfort, and confidence on your future dives. Technical diving courses revolutionize your diving ability.
