Tech diving

 In Dive the way you like

The diving world is constantly evolving: equipment and techniques changed and divers are now looking for more comfort, safety and pleasure.

Non-Technical diving is often broadly defined as limited in depth (40 meters in the Red Sea), staying away from overhead environments (such as wreck penetration, decompression stops…), using reliable but simple equipment (single tank, open circuit…), and not requiring extensive pre-dive planning.

Technical Recreational Diving allows going beyond these depth limits, increasing bottom time (by using twin sets, pony bottles, gas mixes up to 100% pure oxygen…) and enhancing one’s safety and comfort zones.

Dive sites, unreachable or limited in depth or time otherwise can then be explored: the Arch in Elphinstone, the lower parts of the Numidia and Aïda wrecks in the Brothers, the Canyon in Thomas Reef, the Zealot wreck in Daedalus, The Gulf Fleet 31 in Shaab Rur, …

With EXOCET and ATLANTIS, member of Technical Diving International, DIVING ATTITUDE is equipped to provide a wide range of technical diving training and services aboard.

Technical diving training includes:

  • Intro to Tech (Discover tech diving)
  • Gas Blending (Prepare what you breath!)

  • Sidemount (Tanks on the side, no more backmount)
  • Advanced Nitrox (breathe up to 100% Oxygen)
  • Deco Procedures (manage Deco stops)

  • Advanced Wreck (penetration beyond natural light in full safety)

With a good health and mental fitness, these training modules are simple and accessible: some training and exercises during your exploration dives, a few hours of theory and discussion with certified instructors and you are ready for new adventures in full safety! Which diver would not like to spend a little more time under the water to see what few others have seen and to increase his chances of exceptional encounters?
