Technical diving is a segment of the sport designed for the select few who wish to dive beyond recreational dive limits. It is challenging, requiring a significant investment in training and equipment. With the increased risks — and lower margins for error — focus and concentration throughout the planning and execution of the dive are critical. Through the TEC/REC curriculum, PADI/DSAT has designed state-of-the art training for divers interested in this growing, popular sport.
Blue Horizons has three technical diving instructor trainers on staff. Each has extensive experience in technical diving in the North Atlantic and exotic locations of the world, like Bikini Atoll.
Our courses are taught in the Blue Horizons style, by combining excellence with fun. The course begins with the basics in shallow water and builds to deep water adventures. Academics are learned through a combination of home study and classroom presentations with hands-on practice.
Class size is extremely small because of the complex nature of training. We offer two levels of certification for Tec divers, Tec Level 1 and Tec Deep. Tec Level 1 introduces divers to the planning and skills necessary for Tec diving. This course is perfect for those who either do not yet meet all of the prerequisites for Tec Deep.
The Tec Deep course builds on the skills learned in Tec Level 1 and extends certification to 165 feet, teaching multistage decompression skills.

Are you a certified diver who hasn’t been able to get in the water enough —too much work, not enough play?
Join us on the first Saturday of each month (excludes December and January) for $10 Bubbles and a Beer. For $10, any certified diver can join us in the pool. Tank is included. Don’t have your own gear yet? For another $10 you will get an entire scuba kit to use.
Cylinder and weights are included with first $10.
Right after the event, we will head to one of the local watering holes/restaurants to grab a beer, some food & hang out. The restaurant will be a family-friendly establishment, welcoming those who can drink beer, as well as those who can only drink root beer. For those who want to drink beer, proper ID and legal age are required.
Come as often as you like; we would love to see you. Blowing bubbles is always a great time, even if it’s just in the pool. Please call to sign up so we know how many are coming.
Event costs include scuba-related activities, only.
Private dates are available for all courses — by appointment.
