Technical Diving Courses

Technical diving courses provide the techniques and procedures necessary for diving beyond recreational dive limits. These are some of the most intensive, yet exhilarating, courses you'll find. Technical diving isn't for everyone but if this type of diving appeals to you and you're willing to accept the risks, responsibilities and obligations, you'll find it one of the most rewarding dive experiences you'll ever have. Scubatech offers training for Technical Divers based on the PADI Tec Deep Diver series of courses as well as a short Discover Tec experience.


Technical diving requires dives under conditions that are not covered by normal holiday insurance. In some cases, even normal scuba diving insurance is not adequate. In order to make use of any of our technical diving services, you must provide proof of diving accident insurance which covers technical diving activities.

Discover Tec   €125,-
Curious about technical (tec) diving, but not sure about jumping into a course? Discover Tec is a short confined water experience that allows you to give technical diving a try. You get to wear all the extra tec diving gear and take it for a test dive where your maximum depth will be 10 meters or less. 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 tec diving and are a PADI Open Water Diver, at least 18 years old, and have a minimum of 10 logged dives, you qualify for Discover Tec.
