Curious about technical (tec) diving, but not sure about jumping into a course? Discover Tec is a short confined water experience that allows you to give technical diving a try. You get to wear all the extra tec diving gear and take it for a test dive. Your PADI Tec Instructor may introduce a few basic skills during your Discover Tec Experience, such as primary to secondary regulator switch and gas shutdown procedures.
If you’re interested in tec diving and are a PADI Open Water Diver, at least 18 years old, and have a minimum of 10 logged dives, you may qualify for Discover Tec, it will blow your mind.
What will you learn?
Your PADI Tec Instructor will explain the equipment you’ll use and go over tec diving procedures during your Discover Tec Experience, such as the importance of diving in teams but also your personal accountability and what that means when it comes to discipline.
You’ll get in the water, make gear adjustments, then simply explore and get a feel for the equipment.
After a Discover Tec experience the next step is ‘THE’ Tec 40 course and your on your way to being much safer, more versatile in your dive discipline and personal capability… being a Tec Diver is not just about twin tanks or extra gas or even being deeper, it’s a mindset, an attitude and broader view to what is important when it comes to safety, accountability, gas management and on going progression… the limits are endless, one you start you can’t stop 🙂
