Why TEC diving ?

Tec diving not only has more risk, but it requires significantly more effort, discipline and equipment. It’s not for everyone, and you can be an accomplished, avid top-notch diver your entire life without making a tec dive.

That said, there’s a cadre of individuals who want to visit places underwater that relatively few people can. Many spectacular, untouched wrecks lie at depths well below 40 metres. Deep reefs have organisms you don’t find in the shallows. Some people enjoy the challenge and focus TEC diving requires. Still others love being involved with cutting edge technologies. These reasons make TEC diving rewarding.
