When it comes to diving in Indonesia, South Lombok is still more or less undiscovered territory, but there is plenty of diving in this part of the world: from adrenaline dives with hammerhead sharks to pristine reefs and gentle currents – it’s all there. DiveZone and Two Fish Divers have offered recreational diving trips and…
Behind the scenes we’ve had a busy couple of months technical diving in Bali and Lombok. At our Amed centre, we hosted our first DMT Tech internship, added gas blending facilities, taught just under 20 courses – and found time for a little bit of exploration as well. Divemaster Tech internship Two Fish offers a…
Think of technical diving and a picture of a diver in black carrying a heavy twinset comes to mind – pretty similar to the picture here. But think of cave diving and that picture often changes to a sidemount diver.
Both kinds of diving simply simply require different equipment. So far, so good, but what do you choose when you’re looking to get into technical diving? We’ve put together a bit of advice.
2017 is off to a fantastic start at Two Fish Tech. Our Tech Instructor/Manager Yvonne recently passed her TDI Instructor Trainer Course and is now TDI’s first (and only) female Instructor Trainer in South East Asia. This means that we are now able to offer technical instructor courses at our Amed, Bali centre.
We can run technical instructor courses at any time of the year with varying durations starting from 2-4 days. So if you are a diving instructor and a technical diver and are interested in teaching tech courses then you can become a technical instructor whenever you want!

Diving has traditionally been taught and done in teams or with a buddy. The rationale behind this is that adding another person automatically adds safety (as well as enjoyment) to the dive. However, we believe there are exceptions to the rule: situations in which Solo Diving – or knowing how to safely dive on your own – might be a great alternative.
