Technical Diving

If you’ve not come across technical diving – or tec diving as it’s known in the business – it’s ‘extreme’ scuba diving. In a nutshell, it takes experienced divers much deeper, and for longer, than the usual recreational diving. And you need significantly more equipment and training to have a go. Technical diving came about when cave diving took off in the Sixties and Seventies. Since then, divers have developed technologies so they can dive beyond the normal limits and explore deeper caves and wrecks. To put you in the picture a bit more, technical diving is defined as diving that takes people beyond leisure scuba diving. It includes one or more of the following…

  • Stage decompression
  • Accelerated decompression
  • The use of variable gas mixtures
  • Diving beyond 40 metres
  • Diving in an overhead environment beyond 40 linear metres of the surface

Our technical team here at Ocean College is one of the world’s most famous and experienced, with many awards and world records under their belts. Plus, Ocean Tec, the Red Sea’s leading gas supplier, backs us, so we only use the best gas for your technical dives.

Weather & Water Temps

The sun shines in the Red Sea 365 days a year with virtually no rain.

Depending on the time of year, the thermometer hovers between 24°C and 39°C and the water temperature is 22°C to 26°C – so diving is great year-round.
