We are pleased to announce that Two Fish Divers Indonesia and Blue label Diving Thailand have formed a new company for tec diving in Indonesia that will operated as a joint venture, and it will be called Blue Label Diving Indonesia (BLDI).
Blue Label Diving Thailand is the premier PADI/TDI facility for TEC Courses in Phuket, Thailand and was recently awarded a certificate by TDI for the best TEC Dive Center in Thailand for 2012. It is owned by Ben Reymenants, renowned cave diver/explorer and record-holder for deep diving on rebreathers, and his wife Simone Reymenants. They run the full range of TEC courses including Sidemount Diving, Solo Diving, Nitrox/Advanced Nitrox and Decompression Diving, Rebreather Diving, Trimix Diving, and Cave Diving.
Two Fish Divers already has a small TEC facility in Bunaken, and will be using Blue Label’s expertise to grow this facility, as well as establish TEC facilities in all three of our PADI 5 Star dive centers in Indonensia – Bunaken, Lembeh and Lembongan/Bali.
What is TEC Diving?
Broadly speaking, TEC diving can be grouped into Soft-TEC diving and Hard-TEC diving. Soft-TEC diving is only aimed at recreational divers and includes:
You do not need to be experienced divers for these soft-TEC courses/diving styles, they are for Open Water and Advanced divers who just want to dive a different way.
Its the hard-TEC diving that is for those who want to do more exploration-type diving, and includes:
BLDI will be offering all these courses and types of diving, initially at all three of the resorts of Two Fish Divers.
“This is a very exciting venture.” says Nigel Thomas, General Manager of Two fish Divers. “TEC diving is a growing area, and Blue Labels’ marketing and TEC expertise will enable us to grow our TEC business. Blue Label has a respected name for quality, and is a perfect match with our own values and beliefs for teaching dive courses to the highest standard possible.”
Simone Reymenant, Marketing Manager of Blue Label, adds “Joining up with Two Fish Divers means that we can broaden our TEC business into a new market with a respectable operator, and provides our customers with new TEC diving opportunities. As quality is very important to us, we will be creating a TEC Internship program in Phuket for new TEC instructors to work in Indonesia, and we will be making regular visits to each facility.”
