What is Technical Diving?

Technical or 'Tec' Diving is simply going beyond the normal limits of recreational diving. This can be in many different ways: number of tanks, types of breathing gases used, durations of dives, depths and decompression. Because there is added complexity, Technical Diving requires attention to detail and discipline, along with dedication and top-notch training!


I would like to try Technical Diving. What are my options?

You can either try tec - with a supervised introduction to the equipment configurations commonly used for technical diving... or simply enrol on a tec diving course, such as Advanced Nitrox - many of the courses are modular and can be completed in as little as 3 days!


I'm already a Technical Diver. What is there for me?

We make daily technical diving out of Sharm El Sheikh, with our full-time tec instructor staff who are also very experienced guides, with many thousands of hours spent diving the tec sites of the Red Sea. Alternatively, why not expand your training by enrolling on an additional course during your vacation. Our instructors are all full trimix open circuit and closed circuit instructors - between us, we teach the full range of technical diving courses.


What about the dive sites?

Sharm benefits from access to some of the best Technical Diving sites in the area... Thomas Canyon, Woodhouse caves, Jackfish Alley, Shark Reef, Eel Garden Canyon to name a few. We also have access to all the classic Dahabian sites like Blue Hole and Canyon through our satellite office at Circle Divers in Dahab.


Can anyone try tec?

Subject to a self-declaration medical, the majority of divers can try Technical Diving. Course pre-requisites for the core levels are easy to attain, and the steps to increase your tec diving career allow for smooth and steady progression through the various stages.


What about my non-tec diving partner?

The facilities at Circle Divers ensure comfortable recreational dives from the same boats used by the tec team - you can share the day on the boat, and share the details of the amazing tec dives back at the centre!
