Tuesday, 17 September 2013
For the first time ever in East Timor, DTL, is extremely excited to offer Discover Tec!
For all you recreational divers who are interested in trying something new, this is a great opportunity to find out a bit more about what Tec diving actually involves.
First of all you’ll get to grips with the basics of the standard technical rig, which comprises of twin tanks, a backplate and harness. You’ll learn about the different kit set-up and how you manage it underwater.
Then its time to do the dive! You’ll head into the ocean at one of our local dive sites, where you’ll have the chance to get used to swimming and managing your buoyancy with the technical rig.
There’s also another practical side to the Discover Tec experience – learning to manage your equipment and solving any problems that may occur during a Tec dive. This includes sharing air with another diver, and swimming in different positions using the long hoses as well as dealing with a freeflowing regulator or burst o-ring.
Discover Tec is a great introduction to the world of technical diving - there’s a growing community of Tec divers out there…maybe you’ll be the next to join them!
