GO TEC    
  Technical or Ďtecí diving is simply defined as diving that takes divers beyond recreational scuba diving limits. It is further defined as and includes one or more of the following:
  • Diving beyond a depth of 40 metres.
  • Diving using variable gas mixtures such as trimix or heliox during the dive.
  • Diving in an overhead environment beyond 40 linear metres.
  • Dives requiring staged or accelerated decompression.
  You can be an accomplished, avid, top-notch diver your entire life without making a tec dive. That said, thereís a cadre of well connected individuals who visit places underwater that relatively few people on earth ever have. Admittedly technical diving carries more associated risk, requires more effort and discipline than recreational scuba diving but the pros far outweigh the cons. Many spectacular, untouched wrecks lie at depths well below 40 metres and subsequently far fewer divers have been there. Deep reefs also have creatures you donít find in the shallows. We are able to spend much more time at the same depth as a recreational diver due to the amount of air/gas we carry and our decompression requirement along with diving to depths of up to 100 metres! Itís not only about the depth; it's about the time you spend there. Simple Ė deeper, longer!
  We at Bay Divers teach technical diving in two agencies:
  • PADI TecRec, PADIs technical diving agency.
  • Technical Diving International. This the largest technical diving certification agency in the world and is one of the first
    agencies to provide training in mixed gas diving and rebreathers.
