Tech-divers’ training ground has depths ranging from 4m to 15m, this area is perfect for confined water training, such as Stage Decompressing, Setup Decompression Bars, Gas Sharing, No-Mask Drills, Line Work, Propulsion Techniques, Equipment Removal Replacement and Rescue Techniques for bringing an unconscious diver to the surface.
Our fast cruiser dive boat, 13th Warrior, is in position to run traverse lines to the Decompression Bars, enhancing the training of surface support, which is one of the most important procedures in Technical diving, but unfortunately one of the most neglected. Lack of Surface support is one of the leading causes of Technical diving accidents.
