Let’s face it as a qualified Tec Diver you know that there are more risks involved than recreational diving so safety becomes an even bigger concern. So at Bubbles we keep our policy of only offering guided diving to make sure you get the best of what Gozo and Malta has to offer. 2014 sees the introduction of our new boat which will allow us to explore ever more of the island and wrecks further afield.
Tec diving with us will be a different experience to what you have done before, this is because of our much more personalised service, we will discuss with you what dives you want to do and we can advise on some of the special areas for technical diving as well as a wealth of information about the wrecks around our islands. We have a full range of equipment available to rent, everything is fully serviced and kept in perfect condition. Scroll down for more details.
If you are looking for something different from your diving then this could be it. You can take your diving to a different level and explore places you cannot go with your recreational diving qualifications. Gozo and Malta are famous for wrecks and some of these are too deep to explore with a recreational diving qualification. So learning to become a technical diver could be perfect for you if this is what interests you. You will go deeper for longer than ever before, you will learn in a safe environment under careful supervision from Dave all aspects of technical diving and will learn to make accelerated decompression stops using mixed gases unto 100% O2 if you complete the Tec 50 course.
There is a lot to learn in Tec diving and PADI have come up with a great way of developing your skills by breaking the whole course down into 3 separate courses, each one allowing you to develop your experience and complete over a longer period if you have time constraints, each module comes with its own certification so even if you only complete Tec 40 you will be certified Tec 40 diver and able to all the things listed for that level. Then you can continue at any time with Tec 45 and Tec 50. Each module takes approximately
Dave is our Technical instructor and is a fully qualified PADI Tec Rec Instructor and he will spend the time needed to ensure you get the very best training, just like all our courses we have very small numbers and with all Tec Rec courses at our dive centre the maximum number of students per course is 2.
Tec equipment needs to be good, very good! So we have chosen to use ScubaPro’s range of technical dive equipment for our dive centre.
BCD’s – we use the ScubaPro X-Tek series of BCD’s with additional lift capacity ensuring we can meet all divers needs.
Regs – We use ScubaPro Mk25 first stage with 2 x S600 second stages
Tanks – we have 12L twins with 7Ltr stages
Gases – we can supply all mixes up to 100% O2 up to 300 bar
