Tec Trimix Diver Course Training in Phuket, Thailand with Aussie Divers Phuket.

For the extreme diver ready to further explore the world of technical deep diving, the gas of choice is trimix; a blend of oxygen, helium and nitrogen.

The PADI Tec Trimix Diver course takes you to the outer edges of technical deep diving, opening the door to pristine dive sites few divers, if any, ever see.

What You Learn

The PADI Tec Trimix Diver course is intended to extend the depth range of technical divers already trained and qualified to use air, enriched air and oxygen for technical decompression dives beyond 50 metres/165 feet. Diving with trimix is the outer edge of tec diving – the maximum depth for using this technology has yet to be defined.

This course is for PADI Tec 50 or PADI Tec Trimix 65 divers (or those holding a qualifying certification from another training organization). The course extends your depth range capabilities by training you to use trimix (a blend of helium, oxygen and nitrogen).

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

When we are scuba diving the term “equalising” means to equalise pressure between the inside of your ears and the underwater environment. Human ears have the natural ability to compensate external pressure from the surrounding world and this mostly happens without you even noticing that it happen [...]

Recently there has been a great deal of media hype around the link between chemical sun creams and severe damage to coral reefs.
