Intro to Tec Diving
Duration 2 Days
Double your gas reserves with twin back mount cylinders on the TDI Intro to Tec Diver Course. Back mount diving is popular with cave divers and wreck divers requiring a greater gas supply than a single tank. This is an excellent course to have under your belt before entering decompression procedures or our combination courses.
