Last week we undertook our deepest dive yet to 120m. One of our guests Iain visited us with his rebreather and decided to take advantage of the tec diving facilities offered by our sister company BunakenTec. These services include full support for trimix diving on both open circuit and rebreather, and paticipation in deep exploration dives to search for the rare dinosaur fish called the Coelecanth (read previous blog The Coelecanth, Living Fossil in Bunaken).
Brendon is our TEC Manager/Instructor/Diver at BunakenTec, and he organised the 2nd Coelecanth exploration with Iain. He was using his ISC Megaladon electronic rebreather and Iain was using his Inspiration rebreather with the Narced @90 head
After a day of some test dives to 50m, the exploration consisted of 3 deep dives over 3 days:
- Dive 1 to 90m for 20min with total dive time of 120mins
- Dive 2 to 100m for 20min with total dive time of 171min
- Dive 3 to 120m for 17mins with total dive time of 200mins
For the full report, please read the BunakeTec blog about the Coelacanth Dive Expedition – July 2012.
What was also very interesting about Iain’s trip was that it showed the range of diving that this area has to offer for rebreather divers. Before he undertook the expedition, Iain spent 4-5 days doing recreational dives with us around Bunaken, using his rebreather and camera. After the expedition he went to Lembeh and spent another 4-5 days doing recreational dives. Fantastic recreational diving as well as fantastic TEC diving – what other area gives this range of diving opportunities in one dive holiday?
