TEC COURSES AVAILABLE

Technical (tec) diving means going beyond recreational scuba diving limits. But, tec divers will tell you that it’s really about the challenge and adventure of exploring places that no one else has ever seen. Tec diving is not for everyone, but it does attract experienced divers who want to go beyond their current limits and are willing to accept the added risks, training, investment and commitment it demands. If this is you, then PADI TecRec courses are your ticket to extreme adventure.

TEC 40

The PADI Tec 40 course is where you transition from recreational scuba diving to technical diving.

The PADI Tec 45 course is the second part of the full PADI Tec Deep Diver program.
