Who should take this program?

Curious about technical diving, but not sure about jumping into a course ? Have you ever wanted to try diving with a twinset and side tank (stage) to see what it's like, and dive with them in a safe environment ?

Discover Tec is a short confined water experience for practice followed by a full open water dive that allows you to give technical diving a try. You get to wear all the extra technical diving gear and take it for a test dive. Your PADI Tec Instructor may introduce a few basic skills, such as primary to secondary regulator switch and gas shutdown procedures.

If you’re interested in technical diving and are a qualified Diver, at least 18 years old, and have a minimum of 10 logged dives, you qualify for Discover Tec.

What will you learn?

Your PADI Tec Instructor will explain the equipment you’ll use and go over basic technical diving procedures such as the importance of diving in teams, finning style, body position and out of air procedures. You will be introduced to the perfect diving position and trim for technical diving, which will also help with your overall buoyancy control. You will be shown how the twinset and regulators are assembled into the typical technical diving set up (rig). Your rig includes a double bladder wing, back plate & harness and your primary & back up regulators.

You’ll get in the water, make gear adjustments, then simply explore and get a feel for the equipment with some shallow water and open water diving.

Discover Tec may credit toward the Tec 40 course if you successfully complete the Tec 40 Training Dive One required skills. Ask your instructor about this option if you’re interested.

PRICE for your Discover Tec experience is just €85 for 1 person and €65 each for 2 people.

A second follow up dive on the same morning to get the most from the experience is only an extra €20.

Price includes all tuition, transport, full equipment and your full technical diving rig.
