Technical diving is a term used to describe all diving methods that exceed the limits imposed on depth and/or immersion time for recreational scuba diving. Technical diving often involves the use of special gas mixtures (rather than compressed air) for breathing. The type of gas mixture used is determined either by the maximum depth planned for the dive or by the length of time that the diver intends to spend underwater. While the recommended maximum depth for conventional scuba diving is 42 meters, technical divers may work in the range of 40 meters to 100 meters, sometimes even deeper.
Our technical instructor trainer Rod Abbotson and technical instructor Amjad Sulaibi have extra technical specialty courses approved by PADI. We will introduce you to a wealth of new and unexplored dive sites in Aqaba. The tec team has also been recognised by Project AWARE for looking after the deeper environment here in Jordan with clean up tec dives and surveys. We would like to thank all the technical divers who give up their time to help us keep the deeper depths clean.
We have several deep environmental projects running at the moment, removing old nets and fishing line from the deeper areas of the reefs, cleaning up trash that has drifted down to the depths and helping and advising on deep dive issues within the Aqaba Marine Park, although the shallows can be cleaned by recreational divers and the main diving community, the depths still need our attention. This environbemental concern is what drives us to go deeper
