This year, a lot of new tek stuff has been launched by all the different training organisations, so, obviously we had to test it all! Last month, Aldo Ferrucci from TDI Italy, came to do a test week with the new recreational rebreathers from Poseidon, the Discovery MkVI. During the dives we made on the unit, the first thing we could notice is it’s ease of use and it’s weight… half that of an Inspiration! This may well be the future of diving, especially now IANTD and TDI offer recreational CCR diving courses. Fancy doing your Rescue Diver Course on rebreather?
TDI decided this year to open cave diving courses for closed circuit rebreathers, and so we obviously went for it. This December, the first ever CCR Full Cave diving course in the Red Sea will take place at the College, directed by Tom Jaspers from TDI Benelux. Finally, we will be able to explore the many caves in the Sinai on rebreather!
And finally, DSAT decided to reformat all its training courses, to make access to technical diving easier for everybody interested in looking what’s going on beyond that 40 meters depth limit. The new DSAT Tec 40, Tec 45, Tec 50, Tec Trimix 65 and Tec Trimix Diver courses allow now to progress step by step to unveiled depths. Available now !
