This week we get into the details of the PADI TEC 45 course to extend your depth and time using 100% nitrox. This is the third in a series of articles exploring the PADI Tec Deep Course: the first article provided an overview of the PADI Tec Deep Course, and the second article explored the details of the PADI TEC 40, considered to be the gateway into TEC diving.
More and more divers today are feeling an itch to explore more of the underwater world in a responsible way and this is exactly what the PADI Tec Deep Course offers. It is a challenge to any seasoned diver whether he/she is an instructor or experienced advanced open water diver.
This series of blogs takes a closer look at exactly the steps involved in the PADI Tec Deep Course, starting with a look at how the program is structured.
In Feb 2013, Two Fish Divers contracted with Blue Label Diving, a premier PADI/TDI facility for TEC Courses and diving, to run all TEC Diving services at Two Fish Divers locations, under the name Blue Label Diving Indonesia (BLDI).
One of the most important service that BLDI provides is Sidemount Diving – providing courses and diving for recreational use to 40m as well as services for more deeper diving to 100m-plus. When you visit us, you may be interested in our FREE weekly Intro to Tec that we hold at our resorts, or the 2-day/3dive Sidemount Course for only Eu140 (supplement on top of normal accomm/dive package) – and during Jan-Mar 2014 we are running our TEC Promo that gives you 20% discount on all our TEC courses!!
TEC Instructors Hiro and Sandy are tekkies in Blue Label Diving Indonesia and are based in Bunaken, Indonesia. They are a technical diving duo and provide technical dive training and dives on sidemount, twinsets and rebreathers. They began technical diving in 2009 on rebreathers and open circuit, and then made the switch to teaching tec in 2012.
They love TEC so much that they actually got married at depth of 130 meters. Not only that, they actually exchanged vows, rings and a kiss at 130 meters underwater in a cave in Thailand and set a Guinness World Record for the deepest wedding!
