Technical, Cavern & Cave Diving
Technical diving (sometimes referred to as Tech diving) is a form of scuba diving that exceeds the conventional scope (in terms of depth, bottom time and type of diving) of recreational diving, although the vast majority of technical divers dive for recreation and no other purpose. Technical divers require advanced training, extensive experience, specialized equipment (open circuit or closed circuit rebreather) and often use breathing gases other than air or standard nitrox.
Cavern & Cave diving is underwater diving in caves which are at least partially filled with water. The equipment used varies depending on the circumstances. Cave diving is generally considered to be a type of technical diving due to the lack of a free surface during large parts of the dive, and often involves decompression.
Compared to recreational scuba diving, there are relatively few practitioners of cave diving. This is due in part to the specialized equipment (such as closed circuit rebreathers, diver propulsion vehicles and dry suits) and skill sets required, and in part because of the high potential risks, including decompression sickness and drowning.
Despite these risks, water-filled caves attract scuba divers, cavers, and speleologists due to their often unexplored nature, and present divers with a technical diving challenge. Underwater caves have a wide range of physical features, and can contain fauna not found elsewhere.
We are a group dedicated to advanced & exploration diving sand training in the Pattaya & Sameasan area with the occasional technical open or closed circuit technical diving trip beyond, all in a fun, easy and enjoyable environment.
